Thank you very much to everyone who attended our Chianti Champions! virtual tasting event tonight!
It’s now time to get our next virtual tasting in the diary:
New #TWSTaste virtual wine tasting: Presenting…Portugal!, Thursday 16th July, 8pm-9pm
Like some of our previous tastings, we’re asking you to raid your wine rack to see what you’ve already got at home, and join together to taste along live next Thursday.
Between us, we’ll be trying to taste as many different Portuguese wines as possible!
It doesn’t matter which grape variety you’re drinking or where in Portugal it comes from - anything that you want to open is welcome, as are you!
If you haven’t got any Portuguese wines and want to open something else and taste along, that’s fine too. Bring along a bottle and join in anyway - you might find something to add to your ‘must try’ list!
Portuguese Wine Guide
If you’re new to rosé wines and would like to swot up before the tasting, have a read of our Ultimate Guide to Portuguese Wine:
Here’s how to take part:
- Have a look to see if you have any Portuguese wines at home. If you don’t, you can currently mix your own cases on our website for delivery, or your nearest indie wine merchant may be able to deliver if our delivery dates before next Thursday are full.
- Reply to this topic saying what Portuguese wine you’ve got - and if you’ve got more than one option, please do share notes with your fellow members here and get advice about which bottle to open (feel free to open more than one if you like…). You could also get some serving suggestions/food matches lined up.
- Log in to the Community just before 8pm on Thursday 16th July - there’ll be a topic called ‘LIVE #TWSTaste: Presenting…Portugal! ’ where we’ll host the live event. We’ll all say which bottles we’re opening/share photos of the bottles, and then we’ll taste along together and compare notes, just like we do for a normal #TWSTaste event.
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting, have a read of our guide ‘How To’ - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events’
Who’s joining us?
- I’ll be there!
- I haven’t got any Portuguese wines, but I’ll join anyway.
We hope you can join us! If you can’t make it, we’re currently planning the following week’s tasting and we’ll post the details soon!
