Douro Boys „Wine Shows“ in Brazil

Wine Makers celebrated like Pop Stars

01.08.2011

For the first time, the five Douro Boys travelled together to Brazil, one of their most important export markets. The demand to attend their masterclass tastings in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro was overwhelming. Continuing to keep up the work on „putting the Douro on the map“ the Douro Boys hosted more than 140 wine professionals in completely overbooked venues during the last week of July.

Journalists, sommeliers, as well as wine buyers of restaurants and shops attended the „masterclasses“ and tastings in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. There they did not only learn about the Douro and its wines, but enjoyed also many „brincadeiras“ of the charismatic Boys:

Tomás Roquette, Quinta do Crasto

Francisco „Xito“ Olazabal, Quinta do Vale Meão

João Ferreira, Quinta do Vallado

Cristiano van Zeller, Quinta Vale D. Maria

and José Teles, Niepoort

„After 511 years, 3 months and 3 days, the Portuguese guys take over Brazil, as much as they did with Cabral!“

„Mais que serem os Garotos do Douro… os Douro Boys são os Garotos de Ouro do vinho português. Mais que uma degustação, a Masterclass no Rio foi uma oportunidade D’Ouro para aprender e descobrir os novos tesouros do Douro.“

„Douro Boys, diversidade duriense em perfeita simbiose! Grandes vinhos numa imperdível e inesquecível apresentação das coisas e caldos que fazem a região ser única. Parabéns aos Douro Old Boys e adorei poder estar presente a essa masterclass o que, certamente, me transforma num privilegiado. Saúde e que continuem nos presenteando com estes néctares e vossa contagiante alegria.“
