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!
