Event Details

Recently, we here at Waterford have had many of our clients go to Portugal and come back raving not only of how beautiful the country is, but also how magical its wines are. And amazingly enough, they don’t mean Port. 

Sure, for most of us, Portuguese wine is synonymous with fortified wine - i.e., Port. But we also know— and this is what our clients are tapping into— that the past decade (or more) has seen a revolution in Portugal’swinemaking. As Frederico Falcão,President of ViniPortugal recently pointed out, Portugal’s wine farming for the future, return to indigenous varieties, and innovative winemakers are bringing Portugal’s world of wine diversity to the world. Falcão noted that for consumers growing tired of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay (and equally, for those who can’t get enough of them), Portugal is “definitely the country to explore,”  thanks to its countless indigenous grape varieties and broad styles of winemaking.

We’ve been watching this revolution for quite some time and can assure you - Portugal’s wine scene is absolutely dramatic, and you will be stunned by its dry red and white wines— but only if you come and taste with us!
