A Portuguese Wine Dinner

With Broadbent Selections Quinta do Crasto & Casa Ferreirinha

Thursday, October 18, 2018 • 6:30 pm

This dinner takes us on a journey into the Douro River Valley of Portugal to taste the fabulous wines of Quinta do Crasto and Casa Ferreirinha. Port wine has always been the heart and soul of this region but in the past decade, both reds and whites have been introduced slowly into world markets, offering outstanding quality and value. Join us as we taste nine wines from this unique wine region.

Located in the prime spot in the heart of the Douro Valley the first demarcated and regulated wine Region in the world (1756) in northern Portugal. Quinta do Crasto has been in the family of Lenor and Jorge Roquette for more than a century. They benefit from exceptional conditions for producing great red wine.

For more than 250 years, Ferreirinha has been synonymous with high-quality Portuguese wine, and known around the world as “the Portuguese brand.” Ferreirinha was founded in 1751, and under the direction of Dona Antónia Adelaide became the reference point for exceptional ports and Douro wines. Today, Ferreira continues to be a global market leader, and the symbol of a country and a culture.
