Wines of Portugal Annual Tasting
Thursday 22nd February 2018
The Grand Tasting will welcome more than 85 producers and showcase wines from all over Portugal. It is expected to attract over 600 visitors from all over the UK.
Bright and dynamic, the Grand Tasting will showcase the fun and colourful side of Portugal and will include two exciting new features that are guaranteed to enhance the visitor experience.
New for 2018… Two 30-minute master-classes hosted by Dirceu Vianna Junior MW will take place in the Mezzanine. Topics will include Why Portuguese wines should feature at the top of your list and Modern Portuguese wines to boost your business. A third masterclass – Defining Old Tawnies – will be hosted by IVDP.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy the diversity and versatility of Portuguese wine in the brand new restaurant area where a mouthwatering selection of different dishes from around the world will be matched to specific Portuguese wines, chosen by our team of experts.
Back by popular demand… Themed speed-tastings created especially for a small, engaged audience and lasting no more 25 minutes, will take place throughout the day, providing visitors with the perfect opportunity to meet producers and discover new wines. Themes for 2018 will include Seeking distribution, Undiscovered Portugal, On-exclusives and Award-winning wines.
As in previous years, visitors will be required to register for masterclasses and speed tastings in advance – sign up here: [email protected]
