You know when we post the Belltown Wine Tasting post – there’s nothing going on.
Bring your Seattle Cellars tasting glass and come join us tonight, May 27, from 5 – 7pm, as we present Wines of the Douro region! Centered around the Douro river in the Trás-os-Montes e Alta Douro region, it is sometimes referred to as the Alto Douro (upper Douro), as it is located some distance upstream from the city of Porto, sheltered by mountain ranges from coastal influence. The region has Portugal’s highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). While the region is associated primarily with Port wi ne production, the Douro produces just as much table wine (non-fortified wines) as it does fortified wine; the non-fortified wines are typically referred to as “Douro wines”. The Douro winemaking region was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.
