Portuguese Wine Workshop
Ticket Price: $85
Saturday, Aug 24 3:00 PM

Portugal is the "Sleeping Giant" of the wine world. Though it’s been making wine for as long as France, Italy, and Spain have, Portugal doesn’t yet receive the recognition that it deserves. A country that’s been making wine for centuries and is home to hundreds of indigenous grape varieties, Portugal should be on every wine drinker's radar.

Classes are 2 hours long, including a Q&A session with Astor Center Instructor Vitalii Dascaliuc.

  • 7 Tasting pours of Portuguese wines
  • Palate-cleansing bread & cheese
