Celebrate Portugal Day with a Grand Wine Tasting in NYC
Jun 05, 2012 - by Amanda Gabriele
Sunday, June 10 is Portugal Day, and we are celebrating the best way we know how - with Portuguese booze. To commemorate the holiday, Wines of Portugal is hosting their annual grand tasting in NYC tomorrow, June 6. Wanna go? Find out more after the jump.
Taking place at Three Sixty at the Tribeca Rooftop, the Grand Tasting will offer a wide range of Portugal's wines, "from the dry reds of Bairrada to the delicious whites of the Minho, and from the newly-renamed Tejo and Lisbon regions to the progressive offerings from Alentjo and Duoro." More than 40 wineries will be presenting their latest vintages while cheese, charcuterie and Portuguese small bites will be served from Aldea, Alfama and Pao, as well as cupcakes from Butter Lane. Wines of Portugal is donating ticket proceeds to the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, and are available for purchase on Eventbrite.
Wines of Portugal just sent over these fabulous bottles of vino this afternoon - Aliança Particular Dão and Adega de Monção Fuzelo Vinho Verde - and we are getting thirsty just looking at the bottles. Who else is ready for some lunchtime boozing?
