A tale of two trade fairs: Porto & Lisbon

An early trip to Portugal to assess the new 2016 whites and visit two very different trade fairs also gave me the chance to catch up with some of our producers in the Minho, Dão and Bairrada

If you haven't been to Porto or Lisbon I thoroughly recommend these two great cities to you and as wine-tourism really takes off, there's no shortage of destination quintas to visit too.
