Update from the Douro

Portugal’s Bordeaux visits Bordeaux

16.04.2019

Jancis Robinson MW recently commented about the Douro Valley and its wines: ‘So many of the country’s finest table wines are made in the Douro that this, if you like, is the Bordeaux of Portugal.’ How fitting then, that at the forthcoming wine fair Vinexpo in Bordeaux, the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto (IVDP) will once more offer a total of seven master classes. Along with featuring the highly-praised white and red wines harvested from steeply sloped, terraced vineyards, the IVDP will also present Vintage Ports, as well as addressing the interaction of different categories of Port with chocolate.

During the three days of Vinexpo, seminars will be held in both English and French at Booth CD65. To obtain a secure place to hear all the news, surprises and secrets of the Douro, please click the corresponding link.
