Portuguese Festival

January 24, 2017

That's how to do it!

Apparently Portuguese wine purchases make up a only tiny share of the UK wine sales, this doesn't appear to be the case in Brighton. As long standing purveyors of Portuguese wines, it was heart warming to see over 200, like minded tasters, attend our Portuguese wine festival, at St Mary's Church.

What a great event it was. St Mary's are always so helpful, we encourage you to use this venue for community events, whatever the theme, the space really works.

Even amongst church reparations, we could not have asked for a more splendid back drop. The tasting was a "walk round" format, with over 60 wines on show. This was just a small portion of our existing range, so we would hope to repeat the event next year.

Fourth & Church were present, selling tapas boxes and delicious, top quality tinned fish, which they import from Portugal. Our friends Cristina and Jorge, from Lisbon, were also in attendance, introducing Portuguese meats and cheeses.

The UK appears to be choosing Portugal as a holiday destination more than before. With this comes a broader understanding of the wines and cuisine.

There is something to be found to satisfy most tastes. We hope these great value, interesting wines continue to thrive.
