Old World Vs New World Wine Fair at the University Centre


Are styles converging, or diverging? Are New World ‘upstarts’ cutting a radical new dash or imitating their European predecessors? Are the ‘European Greats’ overcharging and resting on their laurels? Ideals of terroir – out-moded nonsense or stylistic reality? And most importantly – where’s the best value and what tastes best?

Please join us to enjoy and explore this thesis further with 32 wines on parade lined up style vs. style – Champagne against Tasmanian fizz, and Chablis against American Chardonnay and so on.


Meat and cheese boards can be purchased at the venue.
