On 22nd July, ViniPortugal organised the first annual wine tasting in Singapore at Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, starting at 2.30pm. Evan Goldstein, Master Sommelier, attended the event. The annual tasting aimed to promote Portuguese wines to opinion leaders, since it’s the first Wines of Portugal event in Singapore. Thirteen winemakers attended the event and showcased their wines in this market.

The Master Class focused on blending wines, led by Master Sommelier Evan Goldstein (started at 1.30pm). The Annual Tasting followed. The next day, Wines of Portugal Food Challenge was held at the Lighthouse Restaurant & Rooftop Bar - The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. This initiative, also led by Evan Goldstein, aimed to promote a culinary battle between Singapore and Portugal to pair the local food with Portuguese wines, confirming how Portuguese wines have a strong gastronomic profile.

The kitchen team at The Fullerton Hotel cooked Singaporean food specialities, while Chef Manuel Azevedo, from Portuguese restaurant LaSalette in California, will prepared some Portuguese food to challenge the Singaporeans taste.

Jorge Monteiro, CEO of ViniPortugal, highlighted “Singapore is a cosmopolitan and open market with high purchasing power. ViniPortugal's efforts are focused on promoting the awareness of Portuguese uses in a market where Portuguese wines are beginners."

Both the annual wine tasting and the Wines of Portugal Food Challenge aimed to promote the interest of opinion leaders, journalists, sommeliers, distribution and general public on Portuguese wines, unveiling their quality and the diversity and uniqueness of grape varieties and terroirs.

Casa Agricola Alexandre Relvas wines were also showcased in this event for tasting.
