W ine World is had a “New” Californina Wines tasting seminar with Harry Root, of Grassroots Wines. The theme was “new California Wine Marking movement that is being inspired by old worlds styles. This was a well attended seminar that impressed a lot of tasters.
Harry, co-founder (with his wife Nicki) of Grassroots, guided tasters through examples of the “new” California Wine Movement. Reacting against the over-the-top, over-ripe, fruit bomb style that has become synonymous with California winemaking, some California winemakers have sought to create more balanced old world style wines.
