“ me, the engine of Portuguese wine is Niepoort”
The Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutiérrez 

Having recently increased his reviewing brief to include the wines of Portugal, in his very first article, The Wine Advocate’s Luis Gutiérrez focuses heavily on Dirk Niepoort, whom he describes as "the most influential person in Portuguese wine—a pioneer, visionary, leader and ambassador. A person I deeply admire."  In charting Portugal’s fine wine evolution (revolution?), he declares “to me, the engine of Portuguese wine is Niepoort” adding “the table wines… are better than ever.”  He backs this up with exceptional scores: Of the 255 wines reviewed for the piece, the top 10 (96+ to 100 points) are all Niepoort!  We cannot recall another recent instance where one grower so dominates a country-wide article...

Dirk’s son, winemaker Daniel, will lead us through a selection of the family’s ground-breaking, critically-revered white and red table wines from Barraida, Dao, and of course the Douro, finishing appropriately with a fortified or two.  Wines will be accompanied by a selection of Volta do Mar’s signature dishes, Chef Isabel Almeida da Silva’s vibrant celebration of the diverse flavours of the Portuguese speaking world.

WHEN: 6.30-9.30pm, Tuesday 15th October, 2024
WHERE: Volta do Mar, 100 Draycott Avenue, London SW3 3AD
• Wine line-up, menu & price TBC (expected to be circa £175-200 per ticket)
