New World Wine

New World Wine

New World wines are from countries or regions where winemaking (and Vitis vinifera grapes) were imported during, and after, the age of exploration - outside the traditional winegrowing areas of Europe.

The New World generally places less emphasis on making wine the same way it has been made for centuries, and more emphasis on making wine that takes advantage of modern advances.

Often in hotter climates, which, generally speaking, causes wines from the New World to be fuller bodied and have bolder fruit flavours.
