Photos: 2016 Portuguese Annual Tasting London | Catavino
I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Wines of Portugal Annual Tasting in London – Lindley Hall

Living in Portugal, it’s a challenge to come up with a solid reason to fly to London for a Portuguese wine tasting, unless I’m already there! As a result of my article “On Wine. A Tragedy.“, I was asked to give a speech that coincided with this years Wines of Portugal Annual Tasting. Considering the two gigs were just a stone’s throw apart, it was a no-brainer to go, and I’m glad I did! It felt like a big family reunion among winemakers showing their latest releases, newest projects and looking for that ever elusive importer or distributor in the UK market. For me it was a chance to taste some old favorites, catch up with friends and take a few pictures along the way. Each picture is labeled with a name and winery/project, as best as I could. As to which wines were my favorite, I’ll try to put something together in the near future to share!

Cheers,
