If anyone is in the area I heartily recommend that they attend. It's a great way to learn about and taste Portugese wines from grapes that may not be as familiar as some others. There is often a shocking amount of good wine. And it's a good cause.

I can second gregt's recommendation. Portugal is one of the last undiscovered bastions of great wine values out there. Whether it is a bracing Baga or a Pinot Noir that straddles the new-world/old-world line you can count on Portugal to positively surprise! And the prices remain consumer friendly so get out there and help those who help the animals!

Are there any more future tastings planned? These are two of my favorite interests - animals and drinking wine!
