The Wine Society have won 5 out of the last 6 IWC Portugal Specialist Merchant of the Year awards (including this year’s award), and we are also current Decanter Spain and Portugal Specialist Retailer of the Year.
Jo Locke MW, our buyer for Portugal, champions indigenous varieties and celebrates the diverse terroir that the country has to offer. These wines can seem unfamiliar, even intimidating, at first, but once discovered these gems of Portugal cannot be forgotten.
In this masterclass, Jo, with support from Ana Sofia Oliveira (managing owner of The Wine Agency and Portuguese wine lover), will be exploring Portugal’s white wines and why they’re the ones to watch.
Whether you’re new to Vinho Verde or you’re already an expert in loureiro or malvasia – this event is all about exploration, discovery and finding some perfect summer staples for your wine rack.
Whilst you won’t need any wines to enjoy this event, Jo will be using the below examples to illustrate the variety in Portugal and we invite you to purchase one or more to sip while you watch.
