Bairrada Masterclass at Portuguese Wine School in the Old Spitalfields Market Bar

Bairrada is the home of Baga – the distinguished if difficult grape behind Portugal’s original single varietal reds, makes fantastic whites and fizz (Portugal’s first method traditional was made here in the 19th century).
“With its soils and temperate Atlantic climate, I am more and more convinced that Bairrada has Portugal’s best terroir” says Dirk Niepoort, whose cutting edge (he would say renaissance) wines I’ve included in the Portuguese Wine School line up.
Niepoort acquired a vineyard in Bairrada in 2012, whilst the Pato family have been there for generations. At Portuguese Wine School on Monday, 21 May, you’ll have the opportunity to taste mature wine – white and red – from the original Baga master, Luis Pato.
Not-to-be-missed, the line up includes mature wines and a fair few reds with ‘5’ in the vintage – for Luis Pato, a sure fire sign of a top vintage!
