Wines of Portugal: It's Not All About Port!

Sunday, September 16, 2018
4 p.m.
The Home of Jeff and Lisa
Zebulon, NC

Presenter: Jeff Price, Triangle Chapter Program Chair

Portuguese wine is the result of rich wine making traditions introduced into Portugal by ancient civilizations, including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and Romans. Portugal started to export wines to Rome during the Roman Empire and, in 1758, the first wine-producing region of the world, the Região Demarcada do Douro, was created in the Douro Valley. The Douro Valley Wine Region is now a UNESCO protected World Heritage Site. Portugal has a big variety of local grape varietals, producing a very wide variety of different wines with distinctive personality. Come and join your AWS friends as we discover the wines of Portugal!


Please bring your favorite go to dish for a backyard BBQ or a bottle of wine to share after the tasting.  Remember to label your dish if it contains any of the following ingredients: anchovies, coconut, mustard, cheese, garlic, onions, or gluten.
