Lisbon: Adegga Wine Market Saturday December 5th – coming soon!

 Adegga Winemarket Saturday 5th December, Altis Grand Hotel 

The December 2015 edition of the Adegga Wine Market in Central Lisbon is now less than a week away. The price of tickets ranges from 15€ to 50€ if you want the opportunity to taste the rare wines in the Sala Premium. Starts at 15h to 21h – professionals or members of the Exclusivo Club have a quiet hour from 14h-15h.

After several editions at the Hotel Florida right by the Marquês de Pombal, the recently renovated Altis Grand Hotel is the Wine Market's new venue in the Rua Castilho. This is just a short walk from the Hotel Florida but closer to Rato, which is the closest Metro station at the end of the Yellow Line.The promotional video on the Altis site shows a virtually empty hotel, however I suspect that it will be more crowded next Saturday!

These are great events and a brilliant opportunity to meet Portuguese wine producers, taste and buy their wines.
