Wines of Portugal announces 2014 US Tasting Series

NEW YORK, NY – Wines of Portugal is excited to announce its Tasting Series for 2014. This year’s events will focus on four top US markets, featuring spring tastings in San Francisco and Chicago followed by fall tastings in New York City and Boston. Relishing in the recent success of the 2014 50 Great Portuguese wines selection earlier this year, the Wines of Portugal team continues to showcase the diversity of high quality wines now available in the US market.

“The excitement for Portuguese wines within the American market continues to grow,” says Nuno Vale of Wines of Portugal. “We are encouraged by the results and will increase our focus on fostering consumer and trade interest in the United States, now the primary market of interest for our global marketing efforts.”

US consumers continue to show interest in the variety of Portuguese wines available in the market, with 2013 figures showing a 5.1% growth in value for table wines exported to the United States.
