Wine Appreciation on the Square

Theme: Old World versus New world ‘showdown’ where presenters simultaneously debating the pros and cons as to who makes better wine: the new world (non- European producers) or the old world (European producers). Visitors will be able to come and go as they please, but  there will be something for everyone and this theme usually always maintains the interests of all the guests in a larger group the topic itself addressing throughout the tasting all wine style preferences instead of ‘losing’ interest as we address the various wine styles while moving through the wine countries.
