Portuguese Selection with Online Tasting
A mix of 6 wines from Portugal to be tasted over 2 evenings in August with ourselves and a member of the Raymond Reynolds team who import the wines to the UK. They're a specialist Portuguese importer with a long history of working with these wine makers. It's a great way to try some old favourites and hopefully find some new ones too from a country which has so much to offer and is growing year on year in popularity.
