Wines of Portugal Concludes 2016 Campaign With Fall Tasting Tour

Oct 19, 2016

New York, NY, October 13, 2016 – Wines of Portugal announces its fall 2016 Producer Showcase tasting series as part of a yearlong tour of top U.S. markets. Building on momentum from Producer Showcase events in Boston and Seattle this spring and a 50 Great Portuguese Wines selection earlier this year, Wines of Portugal is featuring a range of Portuguese wineries in Chicago, San Francisco and New York City, concluding the 2016 U.S. campaign.

 

Portugal’s over 800 years of rich history continues to receive increased positive recognition in prominent media outlets as a top destination for wine and food tourism, including an impressive 24 awards at the World Travel Awards.

 

“The U.S. market is continuing to show interest in Portuguese wines, with still wine exports to the U.S. increasing 22.6% this year,” says Nuno Vale, Wines of Portugal Marketing Director. “U.S. consumers recognize the versatility of Portuguese wines, and we’re confident our fall tastings will continue to build excitement for them, as we head into a busy holiday season.”

 

Wines of Portugal’s fall events for trade, media and consumers offer a variety of wines for sampling from various regions including Alentejo, Bairrada, Dão, Douro, Tejo, Vinho Verde and more.

 

Consumers in San Francisco have a unique opportunity to taste Portuguese wines paired with local food trucks at the Perfect Portuguese Pairings event. In its second year, this pairing competition features teams comprised of the city’s top sommeliers and retailers.
