International wine professionals – including journalists, sommeliers and buyers – are invited to attend the second annual Douro Primeira Prova from 5-7 July 2021 at the Museu do Douro in Peso da Régua, Portugal, 100 km east of Porto. Twenty wineries from the region will present 200 of their young wines and ports from vintages 2018, 2019 and 2020.
The silent tasting is hosted by The New Douro – a collective of twenty producers from the Douro Valley who have been collaborating for twelve years. The winemakers themselves will be on-hand to personally present their wines at this first tasting before wines are released.
Despite ongoing COVID restrictions, the event is planned to proceed after its cancellation last year, albeit with strict health guidelines in place. Six tasting slots over three days are offered to limit the number of concurrent participants. Further COVID measures and regulations are provided upon registration.
