There will be wine makers, importers, and Team Butler pouring and chatting about the wines, and possibly a Fado singer. This is an event not to be missed in our favourite venue in town.
We do not issue physical tickets - your name will be added to a guest list and you will be checked in to the event on arrival.
You do not need to collect tickets from the shops.
Leira Seca is a white wine blend made from Alvarinho and Trajadura grape varieties and these come from 10 hectares of vineyards planted in 15 parcels on the slope of Paderne near Melgaco, in the Alto Minho, the top Alvarinho growing region in Portugal. The vines are mostly over 20 years old, and are managed with a low input and on an environmentally friendly basis (minimal usage of insecticides, pesticides etc). The wine has a bright, clear citrus straw colour with greenish glints. The nose shows is fruity with aromas of lemon and lime citrus fruits. The palate is robust, yet elegant, with traces of tropical fruits, crisp freshness and a good, clean, lengthy finish.
