hosted by Canela
Canela, a new Portuguese Restaurant and Wine Bar in Seven Dials, is challenging Rosé wine’s often maligned reputation in a special wine tasting evening taking place on Wednesday 16th July.
The perfect summer drink, Rosé has had a bad rap in the wine world and is typically disregarded as sugary, sickly and often drunk by teenage girls before a big night out. Rosé from Portugal especially should not be lumped alongside that 1970s dinner party favourite, Mateus, but instead be celebrated as producing some of the finest Rosé wines in the world. With this wine tasting, Canela aims to dispel any prejudice about Rosé by providing the opportunity for Londoners to taste fine Portuguese wine, and discover that Rosé is for serious wine lovers.
During the evening guests will taste four different rosés, all from different regions in Portugal.
The very best time to drink a rosé is in the warm summer months, and Canela’s July wine tasting is the perfect place to enjoy the crisp refreshing and cooling taste of Portugal’s finest varieties, both sparkling and non-sparkling.
Priced at £10 per person, this intimate evening will offer guests a fascinating insight into the history, flavours and distinction of Portugal’s varied wine regions. After an hour-long rosé tasting session, guests are invited to eat in the restaurant and enjoy £10 off their final bill.
Newly opened, Canela brings the diverse and exciting flavours of Portugal to Seven Dials, Covent Garden. Featuring a menu of regional classics and specialities alongside modern plates and a dedicated wine list, Canela serves up contemporary yet authentic Portuguese cuisine. Canela boasts a wide range of high quality Portuguese wines, all of which are sold by the glass and all carefully selected from various regions and small vineyards by Susana, the owner.
