We steadfastly believe: Portugieser is an essential and important grape variety in Central Europe, it is however unfortunately rarely celebrated in the world of wines. The experts of Pécsi Borozó began two years ago by organising a tasting event with Portugiesers from Villány, extended the competition to be international last year and they are organising the competition this year as well. Portugieser is not just a simple, fresh red wine that could be ignored, it is much more important.

The Portugieser Du Monde will take place in April on the 25th and 26th in 2014, mostly at the Zsolnay Cultural Quarter in the city of Pécs, European Capital of Culture in 2010. The competition is on 25 th April in Villány, in the Bock Winery, from 9.00 am to 2.00 pm. The Portugieser variety is spread across Central Europe, called either Portugizer, Portugizac, Portugalka, Blauer Portugieser or Modry Portugal. It would be very nice to see all ranges of these wines at one. Wines may be submitted to the Portugieser du Monde competition in the following three categories:

  1. young Portugiesers (vintage of 2013);
  2. vintage Portugiesers (vintages 2012 or earlier);
  3. blends with a min. 25 percent Portugieser-content

Entry deadline: 10 April 2014

The festival is on 26 th April, in Pécs, in the Zsolnay Cultural Quarter. In the afternoon of 26th April, from 3 pm to 8 pm, the producers of Portugieser are introduced to the public. Entry requirement: having at least one Portugieser wine among the products. A maximum of 300 tickets are issued to the tasting.
