Remember last year’s event? If not – here’s a quick recap:
- Last year there were 21 of the top wine producers from the Vinho Verde region of Portugal who flew to Brooklyn specifically for the festival. Guests got to taste more than 100 different wines and ask the experts any questions they had.
- Last year there were top chefs like Esther Choi from Mokbar as well as purveyors El Super, East Coast Poke, Big Mozz and others who created amazing food pairing combinations with Vinho Verde, ideal for a warm summer evening.
- Last year we got to explore grapes indigenous to Portugal and discovered single varietal bottlings of grapes such as Alvarinho, Loureiro, Trajadura, and Avesso.
This year – the festival organizers are promising we’ll taste and enjoy ever-flowing wine from over 30 top, specially curated wineries in the Vinho Verde region of Portugal as well as food bites from some of NYC’s hottest restaurants.
The day-long festival, broken down into three sessions, will also include sommeliers hosting informative sessions about Vinho Verde, mixologistscustom curating delicious beverages at the Vinho Verde Cocktail Bar, live music, and much more.
For wine enthusiasts and foodies alike, this event is bound to give attendees an experience to remember.
