Portugal: Vinho Verde Masterclass

Join us for an evening of tantalising wines as we explore the exciting Portuguese region – Vinho Verde.

When most of us think about Portuguese wines, we think of Port, or heavy, rich reds. Vinho Verde is the complete opposite – full of refreshing, lively, light wines which help demonstrate the diversity that Portugal has to offer.

Located in the north of Portugal, Vinho Verde is one of the country’s oldest wine regions. The wines radiate youth and freshness, hence why the region is labelled ‘Verde’ (green) which also refers to the red wines produced here.

You will have the chance to explore the plethora of indigenous Portuguese grapes from this region including Arinto, Loureiro and Trajadura. And learn what gives these summery wines their signature delicate spritz.

These wines are particularly food friendly, so if you’re a fan of sushi, spicy Thai dishes, or just kicking back in the sunshine with a glass of refreshing goodness, this tasting is for you!
