Portuguese Wine autumn in Russia

On September 30, a wine salon of the Vinho Verde region, Portugal, was held at the Baltschug Kempinski Hotel, Moscow. The Vinho Verde region is the oldest and largest wine-growing region in the north of Portugal. Due to the proximity of the Atlantic, the climate here is humid, cool, with an abundance of rain. This, in many ways, determines the style of local wines. Modern wines of the Vinho Verde region can be divided into two main types. Light, with good acidity, with a pronounced fruity aroma and low alcohol content. It is customary to drink them young, within a year after bottling. The second type is complex, well-structured wines with excellent aging potential. 15 Portuguese producers took part in the salon of wines of the Vinho Verde region, most of whom, despite all the difficulties, flew to Moscow from Portugal. Portuguese winemakers met with leading Russian importers, representatives of retail chains, restaurateurs, sommeliers, cavists and journalists. Within the framework of the event, there was also held a master class, which was conducted by Vladislav Markin, the Ambassador of the Vinho Verde region in Russia. The best sommelier of Russia of 2013 presented the features of the wines of the Vinho Verde region, and the participants of the master class tasted sparkling, white, rose and red wines of the region. The International Center of Wine and Gastronomy under the leadership of L. Gelibterman was the organizer of the event from the Russian side. At the end of October 2021, Moscow will host an unprecedented number of participants (more than 40 wineries) Portuguese wine salon under the auspices of ViniPortugal. By the end of the year, events with the participation of Portuguese winemakers will also be held in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Samara.
