Terroir Showdown: Australia vs New Zealand
An educational wine & food experience
In this showdown from down under, we will explore these two relatively recent world wine powerhouses producing some of the most popular wines available in every category and style. Much more than just Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc, the wine growing regions of Australia and New Zealand offer great value and diversity of style.
During this educational tasting and comparative tasting like no other, you will learn what distinguishes these two regions, how their wine styles and traditions differ, and what makes each distinct from the other.
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational wine and cuisine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise. Taste wine as it was meant to be enjoyed, paired to perfection with regional recipes.
Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences. And best of all, you’ll leave us with greater confidence, passion and understanding of the grapes so you can ultimately experience the pleasure of wine.
