Old Meets New

The foundations of winemaking were laid in Europe, hailing from Old World wine regions like France, Spain, and Italy. Produced using traditional methods, Old World wines are known for their distinctive earthy flavours complemented by bright acidity due to being aged in neutral wood barrels. In contrast, New World wines incorporate modern winemaking processes that enable greater control over the fermentation process – resulting in pronounced fruity flavours and increased alcohol content. Notable New World regions include countries like Australia, New Zealand, Chile and the United States.
