Wine Geek Week kickoff: Free showing of the accailmed movie A Year In Port
What better way to kick off Wine Geek Week: Portugal Edition than a FREE screening of the acclaimed film A Year In Port, produced by the same team that brought us the other movies in the trilogy: A Year in Champagne and A Year in Burgundy.
The movie follows the seasons of the beautiful Douro Valley, from the hibernation of the winter vines onward to budbreak and flowering, through the heat of summer, into the harvest of fall, and the eventual fortification and aging of the wine. Check out the trailer and learn more info at www.AYearInPort.com.
Accompanying the film will be a range of Portuguese wines to taste for your enjoyment including a white port tonic cocktail (the iconic summer drink of Porto) and many other selections.
Gathering and casual tasting begins at 2pm, movie starts at 2:30 with discussion to follow. BYOP (Bring your own popcorn). Discounts available that day on all Portuguese wines purchased at North Loop Wine and Spirits.
