BCCJ Old World vs New World Wine Tasting
Dec. 2, 2016
On 1 December 2016, BCCJ members gathered in the elegant Imperial Dining Room at Berry Bros. & Rudd for a champagne reception followed by a two-hour wine tasting session featuring a selection of premium Old World and New World wines.
The same variety of grape can yield very different types of wine, depending on the place it is grown. As members tasted their way through 10 different wines, they were given the opportunity to compare the same grape varieties side-by-side from old and new world and to participate in a sensory adventure.
Guests enjoyed the diverse aromas, flavours and colours; learned the secrets of beautiful wine; and familiarised themselves with contrasting characteristics. A few even dispelled a few myths and prejudices along the way. Between tastings there was time for conversation and network-building; a relaxed and friendly setting for making new contacts and friends.
To accompany the participants on their wine-tasting journey, a delicious selection of gourmet British food and mince pies freshly prepared by Swan & Lion British Deli and Bakery were served.
