Douro and Port - Greater than ever before

Do you speak Douro?

09.03.2018

Regardless of whether you call yourself an expert on the Douro Valley, or if you have up to now only tasted a few Ports – or if you only know about Douro wines via word-of-mouth: you have come to the right place, with this comprehensive continuing education programme at ProWein.

There will be nineteen seminars given, in English or German, addressing various topics relevant to the multifaceted Portuguese winegrowing region, which has enjoyed the status of a UNESCO world heritage site since 2001.

The Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e Porto (IVDP), the Douro & Port Institute, is offering workshops for personal and professional development geared to every level of experience with the wines of northern Portugal at ProWein (18–20 March) in Hall 10 Booth F02. Participation in these seminars is possible only by means of advance registration!

A Very Instructive PORT-Folio:

Seminar on The Basics of Port: Axel Probst – author, journalist and Douro expert –will lead participants through the various categories of Port, and will elucidate (theoretically and practically) the declination from Pink to Vintage.

Limestone Wines from the Douro

Vinhos Palato: Situated right in the middle of the Douro Valley, the vineyards of Vinhos Palato command a terroir that is all their own – the limestone soils are rich in calcium carbonate and dolomite. This gives the wines a distinctive sense of balance, and a particular freshness that is unusual for the Douro.

Unique and Unmistakeable

Each Port house has its own style – highly influenced by individual vineyard sites and the age of the vine, by the intuition of the blender and the atmosphere in the cask cellar, where the wines mature for decades. And the Ports from Churchill are unmistakeable.
