A ground-breaking celebration of Portuguese wine, gastronomy and culture, will be held at Tobacco Dock, in Wapping, London, from June 24-25. The inaugural edition of FESTA will pay tribute to festivals, which are at the heart of traditional Portuguese culture.
Curated by Max Graham, founder of Bar Douro – one of London’s leading Portuguese restaurants and wine bars – and acclaimed Portuguese wine critic, Sarah Ahmed, the festival will stretch across three sections of Tobacco Dock, encompassing wine, restaurants, a Portuguese Mercado and wine shop.
Over 50 wine growers and artisans from across Portugal will convene at Tobacco Dock, bringing their most exciting wines to London, many of which will be making their UK debut.
Visitors will also, for the very first time under one roof, be able to try over 250 wines made from well over 100 grape varieties from every wine-growing region in Portugal.
