Duoro in Dublin

Soul Wines, which represents a group of wine producers from the Douro region in northern Portugal are holding a wine-tasting event on Friday 3rd November 2017 from 12:30 to 18:30 at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin 8. 

The tasting will take place in Goldsmith Hall 1 and 35 producers from the Douro region will travel to Dublin to take part in the event.  Most seek representation on the Irish market.

Tomás Clancy of the Sunday Business Post will also present a Masterclass focusing on the geography and still wine styles of the region.  As places are limited, early booking is advised.

The Douro Valley was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO because of its unique geography.  Wine has been produced here for more than 2,000 years and in the 18th Century Port wine was the first-ever wine appellation to be created.  Today the Douro region produces fortified and still wines (both red and white) that are in great demand.

Portugal’s main strengths are the diversity of its wine regions and its wealth of native grape varieties.  In recent years wines from Portugal have become much sought after and recognition for both the quality and new wine styles emerging from the Duoro has been encouraging.


12:30 – 18:30 Soul Wine Fair
