Old World Vs. New World
Updated: Feb 3
The comparison of an Old World wine to a New World wine is a popular type of tasting because it allows us to detect terroir through direct comparison.
Battle of the Zins!
Join us and your day will go from super to sip-erb real quick!
Zinfandel is a red grape and shows such depth of character. Yes white Zin exists as a commercial product, but we are steering clear of that for this tasting!
Our old world example will be a Primitivo from Italy.
Our new world example will be an old vine zin from Lodi grown on the St. George rootstock!
If you did not pick up the previous wine package, no problem! Head over to your local wine shop and pick up a bottle of Primitivo from Italy & a Lodi old vine zin.
