On January 28, Wines of Portugal held a special online seminar entitled “Hidden Gems of Portugal.” Led by the Master of Wine Dirceu Vianna Junior, the event highlighted some of the remarkable varieties that help to make Portugal one of the most diverse and exciting wine producing countries in the world.
Participants were introduced to several rare Portuguese grape varieties that, while less known, complete the Portuguese portfolio with variety and quality. Because these grapes rarely feature as single variety wines, even experienced wine professionals may not be aware of them. The seminar and tasting demonstrated the value that these wines bring, not only to Portugal, but to the global wine industry as well.
Prestigious professionals from all over Europe participated in the session, including Masters of Wines, journalists, bloggers and sommeliers from Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Switzerland, Poland and the Netherlands.
