Wear Your Smartglasses at Night: The Adegga WineMarket Lisbon 2019
Based in Armazem 16‘s light and lofty events space, the 2019 Adegga WineMarket Lisboa boasts over 70 Portuguese wine producers and vineyards from Viana do Castelo to the Algarve. The event is brimming with family businesses and life-long winemakers keen to offer their latest product and share their wisdom on the subtle flavors we so often enjoy.
The organizers delved into Lisbon’s innovative spirit in this edition providing a specially designed digital glass (called a “smartglass”) to every entrant. The glass records every wine the user chooses and emails a break-down after the event— the Adegga website then invites you to buy them online and have them delivered to your door. Here’s a look at what I tasted— please withhold judgment!
Such is the extensive nature of the Adegga website that it’s actually the only wine event in Portugal where you could, for a limited time, buy all of the wines exhibited, online even if you didn’t visit the market. Now that’s nothing to wine about.
All in all, the market is a must for any wine connoisseur, enthusiast, or wine industry mogul hoping to get the latest info on the best Portuguese wines. Check out their facebook page for more information and special updates.
