Like a cool summer breeze!

ESTREIA Vinho Verde ALVARINHO

“There is nothing quite like vinho verde on a hot summer night.”

– Said everyone who ever tried it.

Fresh, citric and slightly bubbly, vinho verde is the perfect companion for the long, warm summer afternoons and the star-filled summer nights. By the sea or on a picnic, paired with sea food or with a fruit salad, ESTREIA wines are made for Summer.

Wine Tasting – 2016 Spring edition (Warsaw)

Welcome to the 2016 Spring Wine Tasting by Casa Portuguesa in Warsaw!

Wine Tasting - 2016 Spring

Spring has sprung – and at Casa Portuguesa, we celebrate it with a toast… and a tasting!

But not just any tasting. We set up a special commented tasting that will help you – through a simple but clear description of each wine – to understand what hides inside the bottle.

From “vinho verde” to fresh whites and fruity reds from different regions in Portugal, we’ve put together a fine selection of wines matching the sunny days ahead – vibrant and full of life.

During the event, we’ll also hand the prizes to the winners of the 4 contests held among those who attended our previous tasting “Bifana at Towarzyska“.

The 2016 Spring Tasting is “by invitation only” but we may hold a surprise for some lucky wine lovers out there. So, if you’d like to attend, don’t hesitate to mark your interest on the Facebook event and…

Stay tuned!

Casa Portuguesa. From Portugal, with love.

What makes Portuguese wine so special?

Next time someone asks you, this is what makes Portuguese wine special: terroir and grape diversity.

CPWS Portuguese Wine is all about TERROIR

Wine making in Portugal is an ancient and cherished tradition.

Barely making it to the top ten for absolute wine production, Portugal comes second in the world when you account for land area. Adding to this, it’s 14 geographical denominations and 29 DOC (there’s wine being produced all over the country, really!), define a wine culture that has the terroir at its core.

There is also an incredible array of grave varieties (“castas”, as we call them), many native to the country, and even exclusive to some regions, adding an extra degree of character to our wine.

But there’s more to it than just nature. For the last thirty years, a lot has changed when it comes to technology and, most importantly, craftsmanship. As an art, wine means nothing without the men and women creating it. As a new generation of winemakers emerged in the 1990s, a renewed approach to tradition has been yielding bolder, richer and more sophisticated wines.

Taking the most out of the country’s terroirs and varieties, these artists have managed to experiment and innovate, building on what has always made our wine special – its uniqueness.
