The leading producers of the Portuguese Douro Valley have been working together for more than ten years as ‘ The New Douro’, organizing together events worldwide. From 2019 on, they will even increase their cooperation and host together an annual release tasting for wine professionals from all four corners of the world in the Douro Valley. This event is called Douro Primeira Prova (Douro’s First Tasting) and is an exclusive tasting event for wine professionals.
It will be showcasing 25 of the leading wineries of the Douro Valley and their most recent vintages, such as the 2018 white wines and 2017 red wines and Vintage Ports. In total, around 150 wines can be tasted and scored in the form of a ’silent tasting‘. 50 tasting seats are going to be available on 3 days, in a total of 6 tasting slots. The event will take place at the Museu do Douro in Peso da Régua (approx 100 km east of Porto) from Monday June 3 to Wednesday June 5, 2019.
