“Old World vs. New World Wines”

25 wine enthusiasts joined us at Putnam and Vine on March 14th, 2018 to hear Julia Lewis lead us in a tasting of Sancerre from the Loire Valley (old world) vs Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand (new world) , a Pinot Noir from Burgundy (old world) vs one from new world Oregon, and a red Bordeaux from France vs a new world Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State.

We began with a Cava from Spain during the reception where long-standing members got to meet some people who joined us for the first time. Our group was typical of many Wine Society events... consisting of both men and women in roughly equal numbers, , the young (over 21, of course), and not-so-young, folks who ventured forth from Connecticut as well as New York.

The response to the wines served up was enthusiastic although, as you would imagine, there was some disagreement on preferences (see wine list below). The food catered from Doppio next door (at the corner of East Elm and Mason Streets) -- upscale Italian fare, was also well-received.

Cava from Spain - Marques de Gelida Cava (served during reception)
Sancerre (Old World) - Nicolas Iddiart vs. Sauvignon Blanc (New World) - Mount Riley
Pinot Noir (Old World) - Bouchard Pere & Fils Bourgogne vs. Pinot Noir (New World) - Foris Oregon Bordeaux (Old World) - Seigneurs D’Aiguilhe vs Cabernet (New World) - Seven Hills Washington

Thank you Lewis for the treats and thank you Julia for a great presentation with the wines!
