The News Douro - Douro Primeira Prova 2022

DOURO PRIMEIRA PROVA

The outstanding feedback from that debut event in 2019 more than justified an encore. 2022 will once again bring the 21 leading wineries of the Douro Valley together to present their young wines: white and rosé wines from 2020 & 2021 as well as red and Port wines from 2019 & 2020. Industry professionals can thus book one of the six available time slots to taste the entire collection at one location. The event will take place at the Museu do the Douro in Peso da Régua (approx 100km east of Porto) from Monday, May 2nd to Wednesday, May 4th 2022.

Gone is the hassle of the long, winding path from estate to estate through the scorching Douro Valley — allowing the taster to concentrate less on organization and more on sensory wonder.

200 wines in 3 days

2nd – 4th May 2022
The leading producers of the Portuguese Douro Valley have been working together for more than twelve years as ‘The New Douro’, organizing together events worldwide. From 2019 on, they have even increased their cooperation and host together an annual release tasting for wine professionals from all four corners of the world in the Douro Valley / Régua. This event is called Douro Primeira Prova (Douro’s First Tasting) and will include the new releases, which can be tasted and scored in the form of a ‘silent tasting’.
