Viva Portugal!

From 1st-30th September, we’ll be celebrating the wines of Portugal, a country that seamlessly combines traditional winemaking with modern techniques. If you’re not familiar with Portugal, beyond Port, then get excited: you can expect distinctive blends of unparalleled variety with exceptional food-pairing capability.

With special tastings, wine dinners and experiential events across numerous D&D London restaurants, bars and shops, it’s set to be a corking month…

Expect dedicated Portuguese wine lists in 20 top restaurants and bars including Launceston Place, Orrery , Plateau, Butlers Wharf Chop House and New Street Grill, with a good selection of those Portuguese gems available by the glass. Le Pont de la Tour , Fish Market and Royal Exchange will also be offering eclectic wine flights, with Portuguese-inspired food pairings – think  salt cod croquettes (croquetas de bacalao) and those well-known (and very moreish) egg custard tarts (pasteis de nata). You’ll also find a pop-up Portuguese BBQ on Blueprint Café’s new riverside terrace, complete with traditional sardines and free-flowing fizz, a weekend market stall serving Portuguese delicacies at Almeida  and a Domingo de Festa, a Portuguese inspired  lunch on  25th September  at Skylon.  And that’s just for starters…
