Portugal is home to over 250 native wine varieties, more than any other country on earth. The tradition of winemaking in Portugal runs deep with distinctive regions and a climate with enough variation to bring forth a world of choices. We’ll explore five wines with our guide Naama Laufer from NLC Wines.

A beautiful, 5-course menu reflective of the region will be paired with this adventurous collection of Portuguese wines.

Welcome Wine

Jalapeno, red onion, tomato, pineapple, cilantro, fresh citrus, house corn chips

Third Course

Quinta de Lemos Dona Santana 
Bright, expressive notes of black cherries laced with tobacco, chocolate and tea leaves
