50 best Portuguese wines announced today
15 June 12
The 50 Portuguese wines list chosen by the British wine critic Julia Harding, Master of Wine and Jancis Robinson assistant were presented today in London.
The event took place at Weston Roof Pavilion, SouthBank Centre in London. Julia Harding, distinguished last year as “Wine Jornalist” for Portuguese Wines, explains that her wines selection “is just the tip of the iceberg, but if I did my job well, these 50 wines represent the depth and breadth of the remarkable Portuguese world wine. The synergy of different native and high quality grapes varieties with striking landscapes and climate is being creatively expressed by the winemakers who work hard and imaginative”. Julia Harding chosen 27 red wines, 18 whites, 1 sparkling and 4 fortified wines and the list will be also presented in Edinburgh (20th June) and Manchester (21st June). For the first time, consumers can attend these events and try some Portuguese wines and Portuguese food. The event 50 Great Portuguese Wines was launched in 2003 by Viniportugal and aims to "promote the quality and diversity of Portuguese wines in a traditional market like the UK with extreme importance in the world wine, especially with strong opinion makers and leadership of trends followed by other markets worldwide", said Jorge Monteiro, CEO of Viniportugal.
