AVON – Avon restaurant and wine bar, vin48, is hosting a Portuguese-focused wine tasting this week.

“Portugal like Spain has becoming a go-to region for high-quality, affordable wine,” said Greg Eynon, owner of vin48.

Tonight, Boulder-based importer Charles Bloomfield of Terra Nova Wines will lead the wine tasting. The event will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in the restaurant’s wine bar. Terra Nova Wines is a distributor/importer of select small vineyard wines from Europe whose wines represent a particular region and are true products of their local soils and climates.

“Our winemakers are predominantly family producers with smaller properties, so the vines receive intensive care and management,” Bloomfield said.

Every Wednesday vin48 serves wines from visiting winemakers, importers and industry insiders, paired with chef/owner Charles Hays’ cuisine. All the wines served are available for purchase at discounted prices from Beaver Liquors in Avon.
