When it comes to wine and cheese, America makes some of the best in the world. From Napa to Willamette Valley, from Wisconsin to Vermont… but can we compete with Europe? Can our New World wine and cheese compete with the Old World? Come find out… join wine & cheese educator and author Adam Centamore for a world class afternoon. You will sample an array of delicious domestic cheeses and wines paired against their European counterparts and vote for your favorite. To make the experience more challenging and more interesting, you won't know which is which until after you have voted. It's the Stars & Stripes versus the European Union! Baguettes versus apple pie! Mark Twain versus Oscar Wilde! Come join the tasty competition as America takes on the world.
