Just outside the trade grand tasting for the Wines of Portugal. In the Master Class before, we tasted some amazing wines led by Evan Goldstein, MS.
Portugal has 250 different grape varieties, most of which you haven’t heard of. But amazing nonetheless. I always marvel at how much I enjoy Portuguese wines when I’m at a tasting, but it’s rare I see that at a wine shop. They present such a great value! I’m talking amazing red and whites, fruit forward, food friendly, crisp, light, heavy…whatever you are looking for, rarely over $15. Your jaw dropped, right? I know, I know.
Look for the grapes Alicante Bouschet, Arinto, Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alvarinho, Fernao Pires. I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
