Another episode from our visit to the 2019 London Wine Fair where we have the great pleasure to talk to Joana Paes the General Manager at Quinta da Casaboa Winery about her family’s wine produced just a way outside of Portugal’s capital Lisbon.
Joana is the General manager of her Family’s winery, having grown up in the winery is part of life. The vineyard is 50km outside of Lisbon and very near the sea which has a fantastic effect on the taste of the grapes.
Joana goes on to explain the grapes they grow in their vineyard and the types of wine that they produce.
To find out more about the wine please take a look at Joana’s company’s web site: –
Apologies for the photographs of the wine not appearing on the video, photographs will, however, be available shortly.
In this video, we talk to Grigoris Michailos about Greek Wine at the 2019 London Wine Fair.
Grigoris discusses the hundreds of years of wine history there is in Greece.
Surprisingly two-thirds of the wine produced in Greece is white wine because 79% of the Greek landmass is mountainous.
Take a look at the website Wines of Greece (https://winesofgreece.org) for more information on the wonderful world of Greek Wines.
In the second part of this episode, we interview Mariasum Saenz de Samaniego Berganzo, one of the family owners of the Ostatu winery.
This winery is located in the Rioja wine region of Spain and was established, in its current format in 1972, although Mariasum’s family have been involved with wine since the 16th century!
