Napa Valley vs. The World

How do wines like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Italian Sangiovese, and French Bordeaux compare with the wines we make in California? What are the key factors that determine a grape’s characteristics, and how may those factors change when exploring a wine from Europe or North America? How can we understand our preferences for one wine or another, and are those preferences strictly based on flavor? Join us for a series of comparative tastings of the wines of Napa Valley and their counterparts around the world, as we attempt to answer these and other questions.
