New vs Old World Wine Tasting – Friday 19th April 2024

7pm at Bottles Wine Shop

3-4 Reindeer Court, Worcester, WR1 2DS


Prepare for an eye-opening adventure into the world of wine as we uncork the differences between Old World and New World wines in a fun-filled tasting event. Held at our cozy venue, this soirée provides an entertaining journey through the flavours and styles that define each region’s winemaking traditions.

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a complimentary welcome fizz, setting the stage for a night of exploration and enjoyment. Get ready to mingle with fellow wine enthusiasts and dive into a lineup of eight wine samples made up of four comparative pairs.

Included with your ticket is a hearty cheese and charcuterie food board, expertly paired to enhance the flavours of each pour. Whether you’re a seasoned sipper or a newcomer to the wine scene, you’ll delight in the delicious combinations and playful discoveries.

Throughout the event, our friendly wine consultant, Joe, will be on hand to guide you through the basics, explaining in simple terms the differences between Old World wines, which come from traditional European regions, and New World wines, known for their fresh and fruity flavours from places like the Americas, Australia, and beyond.

Ever found yourself torn between a French or New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc? Fear not! By the end of this event, you’ll confidently discern which suits your palate best. And what about the dilemma between an Italian Primitivo and an American Zinfandel? Brace yourself for a revelation: they’re the same grape, just treated with different methods!

Although we can’t spoil the surprise of our lineup just yet, rest assured you’ll experience the magic of how distinct terroirs and winemaking techniques transform grape varieties into an array of sensational aromas and flavours.


So, whether you’re here to expand your wine knowledge or simply savour some fantastic flavours, our Old World versus New World tasting promises an evening of laughter, learning, and, of course, plenty of wine. Get ready to raise your glass and toast to the joy of discovery!
