What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

During this educational class you will learn not only about the geographic difference between Old World and New World wines but also how these distinctions refer to a wine’s style and those factors that influence their overall taste. The ability to distinguish whether a wine is either Old or New World is one of the most important wine tasting tools you can have. So join us as we taste our way through some excellent examples of both Old and New World wines and decide if you are a traditionalist, a modernist or a bit of both.

Spain & Portugal: Classic Wines Deal

Spain & Portugal: Classic Wines

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

You could sample a new Spanish wine every night of the year and still not experience all the variety that this country produces. Each region has their own specialty. Rioja creates smoky, earthy, subtle reds with the Tempranillo grape, while the Priorat region makes rich, dense, powerful reds from the Garnacha variety. The Ribera del Duero also employs...

Napa vs. Bordeaux Deal

Napa vs. Bordeaux

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

Both grow Cabernet Sauvignon, both are fiercely loyal to their region, and both create intense, complex, long-lived wines. Yet they are not the same. Bordeaux, with its centuries of history and ornate chateaux, claims restraint and finesse as well as power, yet by a judicious hand. The wines of Pauillac, Margaux, Graves, St Julien, Pomerol, St Emilion...

France: Making Sense of it All

at NYC Wine Company - West Village 330 W 11th St, New York, New York 10014

French wines ooze intimidation; the language, no grape listed anywhere in sight, countless vineyards and producers, and all this at often exorbitant prices. Yet even in the face of these apparent obstacles, France is worthy of our attention. Why? Simply because they still continue to create so many of the world’s most intriguing, exotic, and individualistic...

Nobody makes more wine than Italy. Not only is the quantity staggering, so is the breadth of styles, grapes, production methods, and more. Yet for this evening, the focus will be solely on Tuscany, one of the greatest, and surely most storied, of all Italian wine provinces. In addition to the many intriguing wines from this zone, we will also sample...
