London Tasting Event 2015

With upwards of 20 distinct DOC wine growing regions and more than half a million acres of land currently under vine, Portugal boasts some 250 different grape varieties, many of which are indigenous to the Iberian peninsula. Portuguese wines continue to offer a world of discovery and have never been better matched to the tastes and needs of UK consumers.
