DEVELOP A TASTE FOR OUT PROFESSIONALS NETWORKING AT THIS AWARD-WINNING WEST VILLAGE WINE SHOP!
Emerging from a century of global isolation, Portugal is becoming recognized as one of the world’s most exciting wine producers. On Thursday, October 25, Out Professionals’ Wine Club invites you to enjoy casual networking as you sample a savvy selection of Portuguese wines at Le Du’s Wines, the award-winning West Village wine shop.
According to Le Du’s director of education, Lewis Kopman, “Portuguese wines, often made with native varieties and impressive aging, represent an amazing value for those who know what to look for. I look forward to sharing our discoveries.”
Designed for everyone from the adventurous wine newcomer to the dedicated oenophile, an evening at Out Professionals Wine Club is paced to provide ample time for relaxed networking with other OP Members and guests.
At October’s tastings class, Kopman guides you through six distinctive Portuguese wines — world-class favorites that are still accessibly priced.
