The UK keeps its position as the second most important market for Portuguese wines exports and 2021 figures show that exports of Portuguese wines to the UK rose by 9.4% compared to the same period last year (January to September 2021 vs 2020), reaching €61.3m (an increase of the average price by +8.5%). The Wines of Portugal Annual Tasting is the occasion to meet with 70 producers, get updates on the new trends from Portugal, taste the most recent vintages and (re)discover some regions and gems. Portugal continues to excite so many of you and the tasting will be the occasion to deepen your knowledge about the country using +250 grape varieties, mastering blends and suitable for the on as well as the off trade.
