Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Sousao, Aragonez, Trincadeira, Tinta Barroca, and Alvarinho are the cast of characters this Saturday and their wines are versatile, affordable and need we say delicious? No need to break the bank for a bottle of wine so get two or more and share! From seafood to sausages to burgers to grilled pork or beef, these wines are ready for summer fare!
Join us to taste, learn, enjoy and save at our Free Saturday Tastings!
These four wines really show what strides Portuguese producers have made with their production of wines that are not fortified Port wines. First and foremost, they are well-crafted wines with a nice balance of fruit/acidity/alcohol. Secondly, these wines hold your interest and stimulate your palate making the second sip more interesting than the first. Thirdly, they offer unique flavors, reflective of their origins via their native grape varieties.
Prices range from $8.99 to $19.99 per bottle.
