Another day, more wine. Sometimes, Christine McAvoy and I have the hardest lives!
Wines of Portugal hosted a tasting of a selection of great wineries from across the country, exposing the rich and varied production of this small, coastal European country. Sadly, quite a number of the wines we tasted are not yet available in BC, which was part of the point of the event – to introduce local agents to some great Portuguese wines in the hopes they do become available here soon.

Aveleda Vinho Verde 2012 (fresh white, great summer patio sipper)
Tapada de Coelheiros Colheita Tardia 2012 (a peachy chardonnay with a sweet nose)
