Autumn Tastings

Autumn Tastings - The Portuguese Conspiracy

It’s not like we don’t like the Autumn (lovely golden leafs, etc..) but let’s face it, it’s not easy saying goodbye to Summer and to effectively cope with this “transition”, we kind of immersed ourselves in a tasting frenzy: We’ll be focusing initially on the Douro region, and Beira Interior, with some fantastic tastings and dinners. Below is a snapshot of the agenda for October and November.

October & (early) November Agenda

 Wine Dinner with Sarah Ahmed – 24th October – 7:00pm

Conceito Wine Dinner - With Sarah Ahmed  -24th of November at The Portuguese Conspiracy

Sarah Ahmed is one of the most relevant (if not the leading) UK specialist in Portuguese wine. Her knowledge of Portugal’s winemaking territory, producers, field research and in-depth knowledge of the wines are second to none so, when the Douro producer series came to be (as a concept), Sarah, quickly came to mind as the obvious choice to present us the wonderful wines of Rita Marques, the woman behind Conceito Vinhos.

Portugal Wine Regions – 29th October – 6:30pm/8:00pm

Beira Interior Tastings - The Portuguese Conspiracy

Although the Beira Interior wine region doesn’t enjoy the notoriety perks, and “glamour” of the Douro, the landscape, people and wines from the Beira Interior are equally amazing and diverse, and the wines form Beyra (Rui Madeira) and Quinta dos Currais are here to prove it. We will be guided by the gracious hands, and in-depth knowledge of two illustrious Portuguese wine specialists – Raymond Reynolds, introducing the a full range of wines from Rui Madeira’s Beyra, and Miguel Leal will be showing us the wonderful Quinta dos currais range.
