28 Jul Portuguese Tasting
Sunday, July 31
At the Bar
Portugal has been on fire lately, pumping out some fabulous dry red and white wines. Too often only associated with sweet, fortified Port, they have always made dry wine form the same varieties as well as additional grapes native to this little country on the Iberian Peninsula. Stop in and taste what all the hype is about.
