PUSHKIN HOUSE RUSSIAN WINE CLUB: THE DAY THAT CHANGED THE WINE WORLD: NEW WORLD vs OLD WORLD

24 May 1976, Paris, nine judges and one journalist - the world has not looked back, but ABC (Anything But Chardonnay) is coming and many things are about to change. For the better or for the worse? New World? Old World? What's the difference? Let's compare and contrast and see for ourselves which we prefer. And to confirm it, let's taste some of the six wines blind. As usual to round things off there will be a short wine quiz, with the winner receiving a prize.
