Setúbal Peninsula Wines - a mandatory stop in your journey through Portuguese wines

The broadcaster and drinks consultant Joe Wadsack is making a special trip to the region to properly guide you during these masterclasses. He will be presenting 5 wines in each city, from the 10 participating Spotlight On producers traveling from Portugal for SITT Autumn. Some of them are seeking distribution in the UK at the moment. Whether you are an expert in Portuguese wines or starting your journey, the Setúbal Peninsula is a compulsory stopover and the perfect introduction to Portuguese wines. 1/5 of the total sales of certified still wines in Portugal are from the region - they definitely are one of the Portuguese drinkers' favourites and are now expanding through exports. The region, that stretches from the south of Lisbon and the Tejo river, down to the middle of the Alentejo west coast, offers a beautiful diversity in soils and climates, allowing the region to produce two of the Portuguese wines’ highlights: one of the famous three fortified Portuguese wines, the Moscatel de Setúbal, as well as balanced and attractive reds, made mainly from a base of Castelão.

Get on board and join Joe in this amazing trip to the Setúbal Peninsula wines!
