What’s in a Grape? Tasting Wine Varietals of the Old and New Worlds

Why can you buy Cabernet Sauvignon from California but if you want something similar from France you may have to buy a Bordeaux? What’s the difference between Syrah in the Rhone Valley and Shiraz in Australia? We will sample varietal wines from the Old World (Europe) and the New World (everyplace else) to see what’s similar and why terroir might actually make a difference. You might just discover your new favorite wine! Instructor: Jessica Sculley
