Event Description

The Duero (or Douro as it is known in Portugal) is the longest river on the Iberian Peninsula.

With it's source in the Sierra de Ubrion, it travels over 500 miles to the Atlantic Ocean creating one of the biggest river valleys in Europe.

Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Toro, Rueda, Arribes, the Douro - just a few of the stellar wine regions that find their home along the banks of the river.  We'll work our way through 6 of these wonderful wines, tasting & discovering as we go!  

It really is no accident that the best wine regions of the world have rivers at the heart of them - they bring life, vibrancy, water, vitality & great, great wine!

This evening forms part of our Rivers Series of wine tastings. You can either book an indivdual night, or a block of three.  To book the series, please click here.

Your tasting will include: tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, full wine notes & handouts, a 2 hour interactive presentation, with Q&A throughout, led by our wine tutor.
