Tasting Notes

In this comparison class we will discuss the differences between terroir-focused “Old World” wines from Europe and fruit-driven, big and bold styles from the “New World” (America, Australia, and the rest). There are amazing wines in both categories, and comparing the two styles is always an eye-opening experience. You'll learn how to spot the hallmarks of each style, while tasting 6 great wines from around the world.

About Chelsea Wine Vault Classes:

Have you ever wanted to learn more about wine and spirits? Chelsea Wine Vault classes are the perfect way to boost your knowledge, whether you’re a beginner or an aficionado! Our tasting-based classes are small and intimate, with a maximum of 45 attendees at the table. All of our classes are taught by our staff educators, who are the friendliest wine experts you’ll ever meet. Each class focuses on one topic, whether it’s a particular region, grape, wine style, or spirit type, so you can really absorb the information. You get to taste and compare wines so you’re better equipped to talk about them or order them in restaurants. Our classes are suited for wine lovers of all experience levels, and our knowledgeable instructors can explain the basics or talk in-depth about wine. Each class lasts 1-1/2 hours, so you’ll have plenty of time to taste, think, and ask questions. And after the class ends, you can shop our store and get 10% off all wines or spirits featured in that day’s class. See our full class schedule online, and join us to taste and learn!

At each class you’ll get:

  • Tasting-size pours of 6 wines or spirits
  • Alessi Grissini Torinesi Breadsticks
  • Fiji Spring Water
  • Printed handouts with information on the topics covered in class, and tasting notes for all wines poured
  • CWV Wine Aroma Wheel
  • CWV Wine Evaluation Chart
  • 10% off all wines featured in the class
  • Personalized instruction from one of our resident wine educators

In a group of more than 6 people? Please book a private event. We find that large groups joining our classes can be distracting and take away from the experience for the rest of the students. Also, we cannot ensure that there's space for a large group to all sit together. So please let us create an amazing custom private class for you instead! 


Please note - Cancellation with full refund is accepted up to 48 hours prior to event date. No refunds are given for cancellations after this point. When you purchase a ticket to an event or class, your name, or your gift recipient’s name, will be added to the list and checked at the door, you WILL NOT receive an actual ticket.
