“Algarve no Copo” promotes regional drinks

Portimão event showcases the Algarve’s top wines, liqueurs, craft beers and juices.

Portimão is hosting regional producers with their top beverages from the 25th until the 28th of August to promote regional drinks. Held in the city’s 1º de Dezembro garden, “Algarve no Copo” will allow visitors to taste some of the region’s most famed beverages and new creations, including wines, liqueurs, craft beers and juices.

Sponsored by Vinhos do Algarve and the Algarve Tourism Board, the four-day programme includes wine tasting sessions, mixology workshops with regional drinks, and musical entertainment. There will also be a choice of local delicacies to pair with each drink.

The event starts on Thursday the 25th with a wine tasting session organised by the Algarve’s Wine Commission (CVA), followed by a performance by hip hop, electronics and jazz band Salamandra.

Sommeliere Andressa Noitel, founder of the Piccola Madame brand and wine educator at Eviva Wine School Algarve, will be in charge of the tastings on Friday and Saturday. Musical performances will be by Ferros & Accordeons (Friday and Sunday), the ISMAT university choir (IsmaTuna) and DJ Nuno Silva (both on Saturday).
