Portugal: Dao & Douro Wine Tasting - Monday 6th December @ 7pm

£70.00 Regular price

Kick of December properly with an evening of wine & cheese & spend a few hours exploring the famous regions of northern Portugal. 

When it comes to wine regions of the world it would be fair to say that both the Douro & the Dao are areas that often get forgotten about when considering the great wine producing regions of Europe but forget them at your peril (peril may be a bit strong, but don't forget them). On Monday 6th December we hope to change all this for everyone in the room & introduce you to some of our new favourite wines - the Quinta da Leda from Casa Ferreirinha being one that springs to mind - & highlight why we think they should also be your new favourite wines from your new favourite regions.  

Led by Mary Wright, Portuguese Wine Ambassador at Liberty Wines, over the course of 2-3 hours we will be exploring what it is that makes the wines of both the Dao and Duoro unique & why we think they deserve to be on everyone's Christmas table this year. As it is Christmas, & it is the Douro we will of course be tasting a Port or two - including the 100 point 2016 Sandeman Vintage Port!

The tasting will be held upstairs in our main bar and having learned from last months tasting that 2 hours is definitely not long enough we will be beginning the evening at 7pm and expect the tasting to last for around 2.5-3 hours (depending on how much everyone chats!). As always cheese will be included to make sure you're fully sustained through the evening.

We are selling the tickets in 2's & 4's to maximise the use of the space but if you want a solo ticket just drop us an email & we will get it sorted!

Tickets are £35 per person and limited to 30 people. 

All wines will be available to order on the night.
