Sogrape highlighted on SOMM TV
“The time for Portuguese wines to shine is not on its way, it’s already here!” Announced Fernando da Cunha Guedes, President of Sogrape, in the episode A Closer Look at Portugal, produced by SOMM TV, a globally recognised streaming channel in the wine, travel and hospitality sector.
SOMM TV travelled to Portugal’s stunning wine regions, with the aim of exploring and sharing the history, culture and gastronomy of the country. Our winemakers took part in the production of the episode; with Luís Sottomayor taking us through the Douro, Diogo Sepúlveda through the Vinho Verde region in the north, and Luís Cabral Almeida showing us the south in the Alentejo.
