Question: What happens when you combine rich culinary heritage with modern wine-making acumen?
Answer: You get a GREAT DINNER!

It is no surprise to any who have traveled to Portugal (or met Chef Toni Pais) that Portugal’s culinary influence is far reaching and famous for seafood and game dishes.

While culinary history carries through to the present, the wine-making traditions have made huge modernizing strides in the past generation.  Herdade do Esporão (led by Australian winemaker David Baverstock who loves Pittsburgh!) is one of Portugal’s most successful wine groups – we can’t wait!
