The wine tastings aim to promote Portuguese wines in these tree Chinese cities and show to 400 wine professionals, importers, distributors and journalists the quality and diversity of Portuguese wines. Roadshow CAWS it’s the beginning of the Wines of Portugal marketing campaign for China in 2014. Beyond these wine tastings, it’s being prepared several workshops to improve Portuguese wines information in this market.
