Fifth Wednesday Tasting: Esporao!

I happen to think that the term “epic” has been overused to the point of near-complete desensitization over the past half-decade or so, but I’m taking it back, and using it for something worthy of its definition: Esporão, one of the best families of Portuguese wines available. We’re so excited to have been able to book both a representative from the winery as well as TEN of their wines (I’ve had probably six of them over the years, and they’ve all become house favorites), as well as their top-notch EV olive oil. At a meager $5/head, this is one of those extracurriculars that you really can’t afford to miss, especially if you’re new to Esporão’s family of wares…

Esporão Wines – An Introduction

Here’s a smattering of we’ve got in store for your Fifth Wednesday Tasting next week:

  • Esporão, one of our very favorite Portuguese producers.
  • A winery representative pouring and discussing their wines with us.
  • Ten wines (reds, whites and port): from their outstanding bag-in-box wines (which we love), to their reserve selections, to their flagship red, to a ten year tawny port!
  • Samples of cheeses, Olli Salumeria cured meats, and Esporão’s own EVOO (one of our very favorites).

This tasting event will be held at the Wine Guild HQ, from 5:30-7:30pm, next Wednesday, May 30th. Cost will be $5/person. Put it on your calendar, get a ‘sitter, cancel your other plans, invite your Guild-curious friends, and we’ll see you then!
