Wines of Portugal is offering Vinexpo visitors the chance to get a personal view of the country’s wines with a carefully selected Free Tasting area featuring 30 premium wines.
Each of the wines have been individually selected by each of the producers taking part in Vinexpo with their own stands to demonstrate the best of what they can offer.
Open throughout the show it has been compiled to give buyers the chance to discover the current winemaking styles and trends taking place across Portugal in a relaxed format where they can taste in comfort and at their own speed. There is then an opportunity to take a note of the wines you like and then go on to meet the winemakers and understand more about those wines on their own stands.
The range covers all styles of Portuguese wines including reds and whites, Madeiras, Ports and sweet Moscatel wines. They have also been chosen to demonstrate wines coming from different types of soil, from sandy to clay, varying climatic conditions, and regions most influenced by the Mediterranean, Atlantic Ocean and Continental Europe seas.
The 10 regions covered in the Free Tasting include: Alentejo; Dão; Douro; Bairrada; Lisboa; Tejo; Península de Setúbal; Vinho Verde; Porto; and Madeira. They also feature some of the 250 native grape varieties that exist mostly only in Portugal.
