How to taste wine like a sommelier? You shoud know it requires years of experience, but there are a few basic tricks that anyone can learn very easely. This is a tasting of 8 wines from very good local producers and different regions. Before the tasting starts we will provide an overall view of portuguese wines and regions, at least three different regions. Then the wines will be tasted openly and we'll discuss them, then the interesting part comes, I will change the order of the wines without you knowing and you will try to recognize them again by their characteristics. The tasting will work like a game, since you dont really know what you are tasting, you will have to find out which regions you are tasting according to the information provided and the tasting you did before. Looks hard? Dont worry, its not, its much more easy than what it looks like, it's super didactic and entertaining. We guarantee you will have a good moment for the fun of learning and for the quality of the wines tasted. Very important: we will teach you a method of professional wine tasting and you will acquire the basic skills that you can use for the rest of you rwine life tasting. Traditional bread and water will be provided.

I was born in the country side of Porto where wine was part of normal and everyday life. Already at Porto I worked many years for different big Port producers where i did trainings with some of the best wine makers in Portugal. My love for wine is part of my culture. Im as well certified by WSET with distinction. Since 2013 I own and manage a wine shop at the city center called Touriga Vinhos de Portugal dedicated to small and independent wine producers. At Touriga vinhos de Portugal we maintain high score reviews in all social media, specially at Google and Trip adviser, we were already mentioned in the New York Times and other international publications as a great place for tasting wine and find an impecable wine selection. Presenting an activity in airbnb is excelent way for me to share my knowledge and passion for wine.

Her skal du være

We are at heart of Porto 100m from the big square Av dos Aliados, in Rua da Fábrica 32. This location is very easy to find and we have open door to the street. We are a classic wine shop, in the back we have 2 tasting rooms where the Class will take place.

Highly recommend. Davide is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The evening was tailored to our personal experience of wine tasting (more or less beginners) to make it as accessible as possible. We learnt a lot and had a very generous number of Portuguese wines to try too!

Perfect introduction to Portuguese wines and tasting in general. It seems like it would be a nice experience regardless of previous experience or ability. Davide provides just the right balance of information, instruction and fun.

We loved our blind tasting experience with Davide! The class is a great review for those with some wine knowledge and wonderful for beginners. He's very knowledgable about wine and the wine regions of Portugal and is able to break down the information to be understood by all.

This is the perfect way to kick off your time in Porto and the Douoro Valley. Davide was very kind, engaging, and informational. I learned so much during this session and was able to take this knowledge and apply it to all the wine I drank in the city and valley as well. Highly recommended!

Davide has a wonderful caIm and engaging personality. He is very knowledgeable but not at all a wine snob! we did this with my 22 year old son, not a big wine lover, and husband. We really enjoyed the experience so much! we learned and had a great time! highly recommend ad a pre dinner fun time!
