France’s Burgundy Region produces arguably the most famous wines. Those commonly referred to as "Burgundies" are dry red wines made from Pinot Noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes. Red and white wines are also made in this region from other grape varieties, such as Gamay and Aligoté, respectively. Burgundy wine production goes back to medieval times, when various monasteries played a key role in developing the Burgundy wine industry.
New Zealand is a land like no other; their wine is an experience like no other. The special combination of soil, climate and water, coupled with their innovative pioneering spirit and commitment to quality, all come together to produce excellent wines which effectively compete on the world market. Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are the most well-known wines produced in New Zealand. Wines have been produced by New Zealanders for over two centuries!
Welcome to Round Four of the Old World and New World Wines. Andrew Tokas will be pitting his Burgundian fine wines against Debbie Jones’ New Zealand selections. Here is your chance to taste the Old World/New World difference….and be a wine judge! The winning wine of each of our six rounds will face off against one another in the Championship Round.
We started off with a face-off between California and Italy in Round One, France vs. Oregon in Round Two, with Spain and Chile in Round Three. Now you have a chance to taste the Old World wines of Burgundy vs. the New World wines of New Zealand (or Andrew vs. Debbie).
The first three rounds were highly rated by the participants. This one will be just as much fun with Andrew and Debbie sparing off. Our tasting will be accompanied by a selection of delectable artisan cheeses, breads, and crackers.
