These two radically different regions have so much to offer the curious wine drinker. From the luscious green swathes of vines in Vinho Verde to the steep dry terraces of the inner Douro Valley these extraordinary landscapes prepare you for the contrasting styles of wines to be found here. From the fresh, vibrant, and aromatic whites of Vino Verde and the dry red and white table wines of the Douro to the joys of Port, there is something wonderful for every taste.
This tasting will provide a good insight to the region. Our sister company, Good Wine Tours Limited, is running a tour to Northern Portugal at the end of June 2023.
Time: 7.00 to 8.30 pm.
