Oz Clarke & Portuguese Wines

Really helpful video from Oz Clarke about some of the wines from Portugal. Select a nice Portuguese wine, sit comfortable and view this between sips. If you are in Lisbon today it's definitely Vinho Verde weather at 37ºC today and 42ºC predicted for tomorrow.  If it is not so bright where you are imagine the bubbles in the Vinho Verde are sending you cyber rays from sunny Lisboa today or any day - enjoy!

So Good its Gone

My favorite tipple at the recent Peixe em Lisboa (Lisbon Fish & Flavours) an all Pescatarian’s annual April must visit Portuguese event – was this ever so good little one note Verdelho. This Domingos Soares Franco Private Collection Verdelho 2008 from JMF was literally so well liked by thirsty gourmets, chefs and discerning public that they literally drunk it dry at the Lisbon event and by the last day Sunday 18th April 2010 not a drop was to be had.

So if ever need a better recommendation to try a great white Portuguese wine take a tip from these picky European palates and track down a bottle ASP (as soon as possible or sooner) and pop its cork.


Check out the history of the Verdelho grape that has done a bit of a world walkabout, plus don’t do a double take when you find that some of Australia’s great white wines use the same grape variety.

Lovely Grub from Eleven Restaurant

One of Lisbon's favorite Michelin Star restaurants Eleven, sits high up on the hill above Park Edward VII. It took all of my resolve not to wolf this down before getting the shot. Lip smackingly good, but don't just take my word for it - try it yourself at Lisbon Fish & Flavours all this week until Sunday the 18th at the Portuguese Pavilion at the Parque das Nacoes.  
Not to be missed.
