Our next wine tasting focuses principally on the Douro region of northern Portugal.

Long famed for Port wines, the Douro river valley has become very fashionable for elegant table wines based on the 100+ grape varieties native to this stunningly beautiful region.

Four Quintas (estates) will feature prominently at this tasting. Quinta das Carvalhas, one of the great iconic Douro vineyards, with a demarcated history going back to the 18th century. Quinta do Pôpa, a trendier, more youthful label producing very refined wines from an excellent siting overlooking the Douro river. Quinta do Romeu, a rustic producer of wine, olive oil, and cork, currently undergoing biodynamic certification. And finally, a flight of elegant Port wines from Quevedo Port Wines, a leading representative of the new generation of independent Port producers.

We will try a broad spectrum of these wines, 13-14 high quality wines in total, including both organic and conventional labels. In keeping with the Japanese 'Respect for the Aged' holiday on that day, we will be sure to pull out some well aged Ports!

We are very proud to being these selections to the Japanese market, and believe you will share our enthusiasm.

Signup is now open, wine list to appear shortly on our web site.
