A meeting of the East Algarve (EA) Wine Club took place on January 14 at the restaurant Adega Nunes in São Brás de Alportel.
Forty like-minded people gathered for the second lunch held by the club to explore wines from the Dão region, with Claire Larson guiding guests with information about the four wines being tasted.
The motto of the club is “Others benefit from us having a good time” and all profits from the club are donated to the ShelterBox Portugal initiative.
Organiser Linda Cree said: “We usually have an actual ShelterBox on display for guests to see, along with a video about their deployment in disaster areas and because of everyone’s generosity we have now raised enough funds to be able to buy two ShelterBoxes.”
The EA Wine Club is organised by Linda Cree of afpop EA and Claire Larson of Wine Mine and is supported by afpop EA, afpop Loulé and the Estoi Palace International Rotary Club.
The next meeting is planned for April 1 with an exploration of wines from the Tejo region.
