Quinta dos Leitões, just outside Ericeira, has started last weekend to promote courses on Portuguese wines.

The initiative is led by Pedro Pinto, who between Lisbon, Porto and London graduated from the prestigious Wine and Spirit Education Trust course – level 3.

Over the six hours of this training, he combines an introductory course to the tasting technique and a short trip through some of the various Portuguese wine regions.

Twelve wines, including whites, reds and liqueurs (Pedro Pinto prefers the expression “fortified” – which, in the Portuguese case, designate Porto, Madeira and the two muscatels), are dissected and put to the test in the multifaceted space located in Seixal.

Registration for the inaugural edition, that took place on 9th, 10th and continues on the 16th of January between 11 am and 1 pm, is already sold out, but whoever wants to participate can do so on the 23rd, 24th and 30th of this month in the same schedule.

These courses, preferably aimed at foreign citizens, are taught in English.
