Portugal will delight and surprise you, so come along with us on the ride
Portugal’s biggest wine evangelist, “Wise Queen” Donna Jackson, and Gary Vay-ner-chuk have teamed up to send one lucky “VIG” to experience Portugal’s vibrant wine culture first hand, on an adventurous, all expenses paid 5-day trip for two to Lisbon’s Óbidos region from September 5-9th, 2011.
Things get kicked off with a red carpet welcome from the “Wise Queen”, taking the winner from Lisbon airport to one of the oldest, most charming neighborhood streets in Lisbon, “Principe Real”. Enjoy the town’s famous Belem tarts, followed by a wine tasting in Portugal’s greatest wine shop which stocks wines from the country’s very best estates.
The winner will then be treated to an intimate taste of more than 100 years of winemaking tradition, when they visit the Fonseca family’s award winning Quinta do Sanguinhal estate winery, which includes the buzzed-about Cerejeiras brand that blew Gary V. away in episode #476 of Wine Library TV. The lucky couple will meet the family and faces behind the wines, as they tour the picture perfect estate vineyards and buildings, where Ana Fonseca has hosted weddings, wine tastings, and other special occasions in four different languages.
While its wine culture is unsurpassed, Portugal has also established itself as the premier source of 100% all natural cork wine closures. Tour a cork producing facility and learn what distinguishes cork as the world’s most sustainable, traditional, and efficient wine closure.
This is just a small glimpse at what this priceless, week-long adventure has to offer. Portugual’s history, tradition, food, wine, and hospitality are arguably second to none. Now experience it for yourself by entering to win the wine vacation of a lifetime.
