Vinho Verde Tasting at Millbank Tower

Vinho Verde is a wine region in the north of Portugal and is best known for crisp dry white wines - but they also produce roses, reds and sparkling wines. The wines are growing in popularity and are perfect for summer drinking. They go well with seafood, Thai cusine and sushi.

At this tasting 23 leading producers will be showing over 120 wines in the spectacular setting of the 'River Room' and 'Altitude' in the Millbank Tower which has great views over the river Thames.

The cost of this tasting is only £5!! When you RSVP you will not get a ticket as such but I will be giving a list of names of those from the group who will be attending to the organisers and this will be at their reception desk.

The tasting lasts from 5.30 - 8.30 and you can turn up at any time. I will be there from 5.30 and will doing two guided wine walks, one at 6.30 and one at 7.30 so that you can meet other members of the group.



P.S. Please note that refunds are NOT offered for this event.

    A very interesting range of wines and it was good to try some made from grapes that I had never tried.

    Wide selection of mainly white, vinho verde wines, with a couple of surprising reds thrown in. As always, good company.

    Thanks Christos. Really interesting selection of wines. Sorry I didn't manage to find you. We ended up going for an excellent curry with a freebie wine from one of the stalls! Very nice of them!
