Handford at Home Virtual Tasting Series

Each month we host a themed tasting via Zoom designed to enhance your understanding and enjoyment of wine. We stress the importance of understanding wine culture, history and tradition by tasting and anecdotes. This is informal, intuitive and inspirational. We will be sending out tasting kits with six wine samples and handy information to help you through the evening. All you will need is some glasses and access to Zoom.

For all tastings, we have two options for you – either a sample pack with 6 individual 60ml bottles of each wine, or you can invite your friends around and purchase a pack of the full bottles. Full bottle packs come with 4 tasting mats, but please ask if you need more.

If you can’t make the actual tasting, then we make recordings of our Zoom tastings available to ticket-holders via YouTube for a limited time after the event. Many people have said they are keen to do our Zooms, but the time just doesn’t quite suit them, so this will allow you to do the tasting at your leisure.

Handford at Home Virtual Tasting Series #13 – Portugal

Tuesday 10th May 2022
6.30 to 7.30pm
£37.50 or £175.00
(Ticket sales close at midnight on Sunday 24 April.)

Portugal is so much more than a glass of port at Christmas and dusty bottles of Mateus Rosé. Although Portuguese wine been shipped to Britain since the 12th century, the country seems to be the last frontier of wine in Western Europe – something of an undiscovered gem.

It is a country of fine, deep reds and perky, crisp whites, made with a treasure trove of wonderful indigenous grape varieties. We’ll be tasting our way around some of the major regions: Douro, Dão, Bairrada, Vinho Verde and Alentejo, and sample the wines of producers such as Dirk Niepoort, Mouchão, Soalheiro and Quinta dos Roques.

So come and join us on a trip through this fascinating region, with lots to discover, lots to talk about and numerous gems to be found.

Recording available via YouTube to ticket holders within 24 hours of the session.

You can choose from two options:
  • £37.50 – 6x60ml Sample Packs
  • £150.00 – 6x750ml Full Bottle Packs

NOTE: If you require the sample packs sent to a different address than the billing address, please put this in the “Order Notes” section at checkout.
