Event Description

There is a lot more to Portugal than just Port! The cool regions on the northwest coast produce some intriguing white wines, in the Douro Valley they have been exploiting the Port grapes to make robust, ripe, chocolatey still wines - generally among Europe's best-value reds! And in the south, we find Ribetajo, Alentejo, and the Algarve, all capable of producing interesting and complex wines.

Spain makes some interesting white wines such as fragrant Albarino and Godelllo from Galicia, with peachy soft juiciness reminiscent of a Chardonnay balanced by the refreshing finish of a Sauvignon Blanc.

When it comes to reds does Rioja still rule the roost or do the regions of Ribera del Duero, Priorat, Bierzo, and Jumilla knock it from its perch?

(Note, this evening is part of our core 6-week course - book all 6 evenings and save £25! And it's flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up next time it runs).

This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge! 

This event will include a tasting of six carefully selected wines, wine notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
