Wines of Tejo Seminar in DCJune 1, 2016
by Angela Logomasini
In April, wine educators, sommeliers, and writers gathered for lunch at Barcelona Wine Bar to taste and learn about the wines from Portugal’s Tejo wine region. Located about an hour drive from Lisbon, Tejo lies inland along the banks of the Tejo River (also known as the Tagus River), which flows south from nearby mountain ranges and eventually pours out into the Atlantic Ocean. The river moderates the otherwise hot climate to produce sites well suited for vineyards.
