Dom Beijos is truly a homage to Melissa’s Portuguese roots. Though there isn’t an exact translation to English, Beijos means kiss and it embodies a feeling of passion for all things. Having a good glass of wine is like being kissed, one of life’s true pleasures
The land in Portugal is extremely fertile with apples, dried figs and olives readily available. Most families have a small cellar with barrels and concrete vats on the property. Stomping grapes by foot was a common practice and almost everyone made their own wine.
Though there are very few bottles we don’t enjoy, Portuguese wines are what really speak to us. The Portuguese wine industry has come a long way in the last 20 years. Winemakers are emerging that are taking the craft to a new level and producing some of the finest wines in the world.
Portugal has more than 250 grape varieties, represented by 13 different wine regions. Join us the first weekend of every month for an all Portuguese wine tasting. Taste for yourself what this great country has to offer.
