***Portugal National Day, June 10: Port wine and cheese tasting (SF, 6-8pm)

Melanie Wong | Jun 5, 2004 04:34 PM

From time to time here, we commiserate on the scarcity of Portuguese eating opportunities locally. While more of a wine event than strictly food, I thought the opportunity to celebrate Portugal National Day on June 10 in San Francisco with the Douro and Port Wine Institute was worth sharing.

As of yesterday, the 20 producers listed below will be participating. There should be some high quality wines available from a good mix of Portuguese-owned and "British" houses.

Broadbent
Cálem
Cockburn’s
Dow’s
Ferreira
Graham’s
Krohn
Niepoort
Offley
Quinta do Crasto
