Portuguese Wine Fair arrives in Dublin on Monday, 23 October
AICEP Portuguese Global Trade & Investment will host a Portuguese Wine Fair in the Marker Hotel
12 October 2023
Portugal’s two main strengths as a European wine producing country are the diversity of its wine styles and its wealth of native grape varieties.
A small country, occupying approximately one seventh of the Iberian Peninsula; it is long and narrow and runs 600km from north to south and 200km from west to east. It has the Atlantic Ocean to the West which influences the weather, and it borders Spain to the north and east.
On Monday 23 October, 2023 AICEP Portuguese Global Trade & Investment will be holding a Portuguese Wine Fair in the Marker Hotel from 12:00 – 16:30. The objective is to offer support to the Portuguese producers who are already represented on the Irish market. Twelve importers will take part and over 200 wines will be available to taste.

Bento Amaral was director of Technical Services and Certification at the Institute of Douro and Port Wines (IVDP). In 1994, due to an unfortunate sailing accident, Amaral became paraplegic. However, this never deterred his enthusiasm for living. In 2005, Amaral became the World Champion of Disabled Sailing, going on to represent Portugal in the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games.
Amaral has worked tirelessly to improve diversity and inclusion within the wine industry, especially in terms of creating more access and opportunities for people with disabilities. He is a founding member of Humanwinety, an organisation that helps to empower and include individuals from minority groups within the wine and hospitality industries through innovative education.
The event is being organised by the Economic & Commercial Office of the Embassy of Portugal in Ireland (AICEP).
