What does Old World vs New World Mean?
In this special, three-course wine dinner we will be serving two wines with each course. One from the Old World and one from the New World, so you can compare.
Old World wines are wines that are made in countries that are considered the birthplaces of wine. These include France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Austria, Greece, Lebanon, Israel, Croatia, Georgia, Romania, Hungary, and Switzerland. Wines from the Old World are usually lighter-bodied.
New World wines are wines that come from countries that used to be colonies. These include the U.S., New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Australia, and South Africa. New World wines are usually from hotter climates which many times causes the wines to be fuller bodied with bold fruit flavors.
Learn more about the difference between Old World and New World wines at our wine dinner and see which you prefer. Check out the menu below and call us at 919-782-9463 to reserve your spot.
