Due to popular demand, we’re absolutely delighted to be hosting authors Simon J Woolf and Ryan Opaz here on The Community for an Ask Me Anything event!
NEW: AMA - with authors Simon J Woolf and Ryan Opaz, Monday 15th March, 1-2pm
@simonjwoolf and Ryan Opaz answer your questions on Portuguese wine, and why they feel it’s one of Europe’s most exciting and dynamic wine lands right now.
As their crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming book “Foot Trodden - Portugal and the wines that time forgot” draws to a close, Simon & Ryan join us to answer your questions about the book - and why they decided to focus on Portugal.
The pair have travelled Portugal from north to south over the last decade, with Ryan resident in Porto since 2013. Their knowledge extends from the classic regions such as Douro, Vinho Verde or Dao to some of Portugal’s more fascinating curiosities such as the eternally youthful wines of Colares, the clay pot (talha) tradition in Alentejo or the Medieval wine from Tejo that has its origins in the local Cistercian monastery.
Simon and Ryan have a particular penchant for Portugal’s new and upcoming winemakers, and for its fast-developing organic and natural wine scene.
You can pre-order ‘Foot Trodden’ and contribute to their kickstarter campaign here:
