An Evening with Quinta de Cottas, Portugal.

For our first Autumn tasting event, we are delighted to hook up with the beautiful Quinta de Cottas, ‘live’ from their home in the Douro Valley, Portugal.  Located near Pinhão, Quinta de Cottas is a 10 hectare estate that sets the goal of farming in an environmentally responsible way,  based on minimal disturbance to the soils in order to preserve the Douro´s biodiversity.

As is typical in the region, we find Old Vines ageing up to 70 years old, consisting of field blends with more than 16 varieties grown, with predominant varietals being Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Carvalha.

We will be expertly guided through a line up of top quality still and fortified wines, that will give you a real sense of place and help you discover what makes this land so special.

Our on-line, via Zoom, tasting is a great way to learn some key facts about a subject, but more importantly, provide an opportunity to all do something together during this period of restrictions.

Our virtual tasting will last approximately 2 hours and will be hosted through a private Zoom page, during which time you will be able to ask questions and make comments. We will deliver out to you the day before the event, a little box containing 6 wines, some charcuterie and the tasting notes you will need to keep a record. We hope you can join us with your friends and make this a great community event.

We offer free local delivery via our personal delivery service on all event orders , within a 10-mile radius of the shop. For orders over 10 miles we charge a standard rate of £10. These orders will be delivered via our personal delivery service or Courier Service depending on the distance involved.
