Algarve-based company Wine Emotions is hosting its annual Christmas fair on Saturday, December 9.

It will be held at the company’s showroom in Mexilhoeira da Carregação, Lagoa, giving visitors an opportunity to discover a variety of wines that are not easy to find.

As João Marques, who runs the company with business partner Rafael Cavaco, explains, most of the wine producers that Wine Emotions represents are “small-scale producers”.

There will also be several gourmet food brands taking part, making for a complete gastronomic event.

With Christmas less than a month away, the fair is promoted as a great event for some Christmas shopping.

“Visitors can taste the wines before they buy them, so they know exactly what gifts they’ll be giving,” says Marques, who has worked as a Sommelier with Gordon Ramsay at Claridges in London.

The event will also have a charitable side. The 16 wine producers taking part will auction off a special bottle of their wine, with proceeds going to Lagoa’s volunteer firefighters.

Musical entertainment will be provided by saxophonist Martin the Flying Dutchman and DJ Vasco Dantas.

Admission is €10, which can be discounted off any eventual purchase at the event. Doors open at 2pm and close at 7pm.

The Wine Emotions showroom is located in the São Pedro urbanisation on Rua Poeta António Aleixo.
