Taste of Portugal Wine Tasting (one of two sessions)
Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 10:30 PM (CST)
24 different wines and two sessions to choose from:
Portuguese wine is the result of traditions introduced to the region by ancient civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and mostly the Romans. Portugal started to export its wines to Rome during the Roman Empire.
OK, back to our present days.
On Sat. February 22nd. We will be tasting fine wine from different wine growing regions of Portugal, (many of them protected by Unesco).
Refreshments as well as passed hors d'œuvres will be served during the event.
Their soccer team isn’t all that bad either from what we hear....
