    Old World vs. New World »

    The most basic difference between New World and Old World wines is purely geographic. The term “Old World” generally refers to wines produced in countries considered the birthplaces of wine – basically Europe and Middle East. These include, for example, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Armenia, Greece, Romania and Georgia. New World wines come from countries that only started producing wine during and following the age of exploration or colonization. For instance, the United States, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Australia, China and Canada are New World wine regions. Find out the differences between New World and Old World wine and how winemaking practices and regional climate greatly affect the taste of wine. Kelsey Lullo, presenter.

    Single Malt & Blended Scotch Whiskies »

    Single malts are the product of a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient, whereas a blended scotch whisky is a result of different single malt and grain whiskies blended together to create an exceptionally well-rounded flavor. The blending process is carried out in a hand selected oak casks, which is an important part of developing the spirit's depth of character. Doesn't matter if it's a blend or single malt … they are all wonderfully different. Featuring Glenlivet 12yr, 15yr & Chivas 18yr. Ken Haller, presenter

    Fantastic California Cabernets »

    California Cabernet Sauvignon is America's most beloved red wine. In 2009, California crushed almost 450,000 tons of Cabernet grapes, an amount roughly equal to one bottle per person for the entire US population. Fortunately, California's climate and soils—particularly in Napa Valley—are unbelievably well suited to Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more complex and layered wines out there. It comes in a wide variety of styles. Some wines are riper, richer and more powerful, others offer a more elegant taste, texture and feel. Learn why it is America's favorite wine! Christian Karnath, presenter.
