Wine Appreciation at Kent Wine and Cookery School


From Merlot to Malbec – from Sauvignon Blanc to Shiraz – wines of the New World


When the wines from the New World began to reach our supermarkets in the early 1980s – they were an instant success. Easy to understand labels, easy drinking wine – bursting with fruit and excellent value for money. The success story continues today, but in the last 30 years or so, New world production has come a long way with more emphasis on single vineyards, planting at altitude and cooler regions in order to create greater concentration in our favourite wines and developing high quality premium wines.


If you a New World fan – this wine tasting will focus on the Americas – North and South. As well as California, Washington state and Oregon produce some excellent quality wine as well as exploring Chile and Argentina trying old favourites such as merlot and Malbec but some less well known wines as well



Rowena is very knowledgeable regarding wine. Choosing wine can feel awkward when you feel you don’t know enough. This event is both fun and has an educational purpose too. Lots of interaction and interest from everyone around the table.
