PORTUGAL: A wine travel overview with Ryan Opaz of Catavino
A special night with one of the top Iberian wine travel experts in the world, Minnesota native Ryan Opaz.
If there is one wine country to keep an eye on right now, it’s Portugal. No other wine destination is getting the type of international travel coverage that Portugal has received from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and many other esteemed publications. Add to that feature articles in Wine Spectator, Wines and Vines, Wine Enthusiast, and many more and you can understand why there’s so much buzz for Portugal at the moment.
In this special night of travel discussion and wine tasting, we’ll let Ryan Opaz guide us through what is new in Portuguese and Spanish wine travel, how best to plan a trip, how to navigate the culture and language, cities and towns to seek out, and a list of “must visits” for all wine lovers.
Ryan Opaz was the leader of our Flying Grape travel group that visited Portugal for a wine education immersion in October of 2016. His knowledge and trip organization skills have proved incredibly valuable to the dozens of clients we have sent his way. In this rare visit back to his home state, we’ll catch up with Ryan and give you hints and tips for planning a Portugal adventure while tasting and learning about the wines.
Seating is limited for this intimate evening.
I hope you can join us for this special night, which is sure to open your eyes to a whole new world of wine.
