There are many great wine regions both domestically (to the US) and around the world. One of those up and coming regions is Portugal.
But how do you know if you would like their wines and foods until you travel there? Go to a tasting event. Vinho Verde is the most northern region of Portugal with distictive wines that balance well with a cuisine that features a lot of fish.
Below is a link to a wine tasting event in NYC where you can try out some of these wines.
