CWM: Old World vs New World Wine Fair

26th October at 3:00 pm5:00 pm

We journey across the globe to compare and contrast the differences between the two most diverse wine groups. Whilst ‘Old World’ wines may hold the pride of tradition, the ‘New World’ has been fighting back using the latest technology and developments in the vineyard and is subsequently developing a reputation for high quality, good value wines.

Join us to consider: are the two styles converging, or diverging? Are New World ‘upstarts’ cutting a radical new dash or imitating their European predecessors? Do some of the continent’s ‘greats’ still deserve to be so highly esteemed in the face of their newcomer rivals? Are ideals of ‘terroir’ out-dated nonsense or stylistic reality? And, of greatest importance, what is best value and what do you simply enjoy to drink most?

The £10 ticket includes the entry fee and a cheese and meats platter (other options available for vegetarians, vegans and other dietary requirements). We use a voucher system for tasting samples and you may purchase vouchers on the door at the fair. Additional vouchers and food may be purchased throughout the event.

Over-18s only (you may be asked to show a valid ID document if you appear to be 25 or under). The venue has step-free access and a disabled WC. Free water and spittoons will be available on request.

Tickets may be transferred but are non-refundable. We reserve the right to cancel the event due to circumstances beyond our control.
