A tasting of five different wines from the Herdade do Esporão Winery, including specially selected and created dishes by the Kempinski Hotel River Park's head chef, Björn Juhnke, only for this occasion. A wine degustation dinner that will take you away to warm and sunny Portugal.
EUR 75 per person
The head chef Björn Juhnke has teamed up with sommelier Rasťo Šuták and prepared a degustation dinner to perfectly compliment the best of Portugal’s wines.
Herdade do Esporão is located in the Aletejo region of Portugal. This region is well known historically for producing fine wines because of its tough summer climate with hot days and cool nights. Herdade do Esporão wines are therefore balanced, elegant, powerful and have good ageing potential. The winery stands by the Esporão tower which was built during the Middle Ages. This tower is the symbol of Herdade do Esporão and includes a gallery where tourists can see the original wine labels from 1985. Herdade do Esporão is run by head winemaker David Baverstock who has won winemaker of the year in both 1999 and 2013 in the Portuguese winemaker awards. His team consists of Luis Patrão who is in charge of the red wines and Sandra Alves, who is in charge of the white and rosé wines.

The winery uses the newest technology in wine making including efficient refrigeration methods, stainless steel tanks and pneumatic presses developed for the intense maceration of grapes, as well as traditional winemaking methods on a small-scale such as using four small temperature controlled tanks where the finest grapes are pressed by hand. The winery was designed to reduce the use of pumps and allow gravity to naturally pump the fortifying wines. Herdade do Esporão spares no effort or expense in their production methods, focusing solely on the best production of wines to ensure the highest quality.
