What’s Old World Wine?

Posted on: August 20th, 2017 by Jen Cornell No Comments

 

We are looking forward to introducing old world wines you should be drinking today at our event this Thursday night. But, what does old world mean?

Old world wines are from regions where winemaking was born. These include wines from France, Italy, Spain, Greece and Germany. The taste and alcohol content of old world wines are effected by the terroir – literally, the soil where the grapes are grown – and how the wine is made.

New world wines are from regions where wine would’ve been imported once European settlers moved to countries like the U.S., South America, and Australia.

One thing that we love about old world wines is that they were often crafted to accompany the type of food prevalent in the region – think Italian wines and pasta. There’s no doubt that this thinking is reflected in how Vinology approaches our menu and pairing suggestions.

There are still a few spaces available for Old World Varietals You Should Drink Today on Thursday evening, 6 to 8 p.m. The event costs $40 per person and registration is by phone: 734-222-9841.
