Portugal: Travel and Tasting
Our (current) favorite European wine destination: Portugal!
Come learn why it’s our favorite, some cool current info for travelers and wine lovers, and taste an array of awesome selections. Get ready for a VERY comprehensive night of wine and learning!
Our love of Portugal, from the people to the food to the wines, runs deep. It’s been our European destination of choice for the last seven years, and is on top of our list for post-pandemic wine travel.
Join us to learn why it’s so special. We’ll cover the major wine regions, styles of wine, key producers, and of course a full lesson on Port production and how to find what you like from the Douro Valley. The diversity of wines from Portugal are vast, far more than most consumers realize, and we aim to showcase this diversity in style.
Wines to be presented: Six wonderful wines from throughout Portugal, including a small selection of top notch Port wines from one of our favorite producers. All wines will be available for purchase via Solo Vino Wine Shop and North Loop Wine and Spirits.
About the evening. Our host location, the Campus Club at the University of Minnesota, is one of our favorite venues. You can pre-order a cheese plate to go along with your wine tasting, or arrive early for a bite! Easy underground parking is available (note there is a parking fee). Those wishing to eat ahead of the event are invited to arrive anytime before 5pm. Class begins promtly at 6:00pm.
Please note the kitchen at the Campus Club closes when our class begins.
We hope you can join us!
