For March, we are thrilled to offer a tasting of Wines from Portugal!
Portugal is a land of ancient vineyards as well as varietals that are unique to the area. Except for its famous Port and Madeira, many of the excellent wines produced there have been previously overlooked. This is one reason you can find many superb Portuguese wines at bargain prices.
Portuguese wine expert Carlos Carreira and wine specialist Anthony Pescione have joined with our own wine specialists at Whole Foods Market Beverly Hills to present 10 different wines from Portugal. The tasting will be conducted blind, to allow participants to form their opinions of each wine, uninfluenced by others’ impressions or the price tag. But you will get a list of the wines at the end, with their descriptions, so you can compare your notes.
The tasting will be held at the Crescent Hotel & Restaurant, 403 North Crescent Drive, one block North of the Beverly Hills Whole Foods Market. There is plenty of nearby parking in the public lots or valet parking is available at the Crescent Hotel.
