Teddington, Middlesex TW11 9NN
Portugese wine is probably among the most under-rated and good value in the world, and its fortunes are on the rise. Consistent sunshine and long growing season make for ripe and flavoursome wines, while proximity to the Atlantic means its climate is cooler than you might expect from holidaying in the Algarve, ensuring freshness and complexity.
We will explore a variety of vibrant wine styles from different regions: fresh whites from Vinho Verde, complex reds from the Douro, Dão and Bairrada, fabulous foody whites and reds from Alentejo and even a sweetie from Setúbal.
