Wines of Portugal Unveiled at Grand Tasting Open to the Public – October 10 at Smith & Wollensky, Miami Beach

Wines of Portugal invites enthusiasts to indulge in the willowy, watery meadows of the Tejo region on October 10 at 6:00 p.m., by way of South Pointe, Miami Beach at Smith & Wollensky.  Wine lovers will be privy to a unique, all-you-can-drink, tasting of 100 distinct wines hailing from the hillier areas that rise out of the River Tagus (Tejo in Portuguese) in southwest Portugal.  The region’s offerings range from gentle, easy-drinking reds, rosés and fruity wines, and aromatic whites for everyday quaffing, to more complex wines from the drier hills.  Participating wines and producers include:

Atela’s Blend 2007 (Quinta da Atela): Ruby color, complex notes of berries, mint and a hint of toast; well-balanced with good acidity and quality tannins on the finish

Bridão Touriga Nacional 2009 (Adega Coorperativa do Cartaxo): Red wine intense with fruity notes of lemon, while soft and balanced with a long finish
