UK Old World vs New World: The Great Wine Debate
Join me as Chair of the ultimate debate on 19th November with Intelligence Squared
Fighting for the tradition and terroir of the Old World will be Jancis Robinson, wine correspondent of the Financial Times and the first person outside the wine trade to qualify as a Master of Wine.
Fighting for the modernising spirit of the New World will be Oz Clarke, the last winner of the World Wine Tasting Championship, and the youngest ever British Wine Taster of the Year.
Join us on November 19th and decide for yourself which world will prevail.
You will be given two complimentary glasses of wine supplied by Waitrose — one from each territory — to taste. As they go head to head, Robinson and Clarke will talk you through the nuances of their chosen wine to persuade you which half of the world to vote for. The balanced elegance of the Old World? Or the bold verve and experimentalism of the New World?
UK Wines from Around the World with Amelia Singer
Join Amelia at Leiths for a fun, interactive day of diving into the Old and New Worlds of wine.
Leiths has created a menu which Amelia has matched wines to; a Leiths teacher will be cooking dishes in the background, which are then served and tasted alongside the wines.
Canapé – Thyme cracker rare roast beef horseradish and caper dressing
Starter – Smoked haddock soufflé tomato, pepper and olive sauce
Main – Roasted lamb rump with salsify pumpkin and sweet potato puree, parsnip crisp and buttered kale
Dessert – Apple cake blackberry and apple compote cinnamon ice cream
The Old World wine-growing regions of France, Italy, Spain, Germany will be pitted against the New World areas of California, Australia, South Africa and Chile.
Old World wines, generally lighter-bodied with herbal, mineral and floral components, will be closely compared to the wines of the New World, which are generally full-bodied, fruity and higher in alcohol thanks to warmer climates.
Continuity, history and tradition vs. technology and science – but which world should prevail?
Book here to join Amelia at Leiths on November 23rd and decide for yourself.
