In the exceptionally mild and sunny beginning of October in Lisbon, an international Harvard Club delegation gathered together for their annual alumni meeting, which took place on a Saturday evening at the Castelo de São Jorge. To welcome the approximately 80 leaders of several European and American Harvard Clubs, Wine with a View organized a festive reception in front of the famous Moorish hilltop castle in the historic center of Lisbon.
One of the castle’s charming stone tables was promptly transformed into a Wine with a View counter, offering home-made finger-food, carefully prepared with selected Portuguese Cheese, Charcuterie, Olives and grapes.
Harvard Alumni Association’s guests were invited by the Wine with a View team to taste some of the best Portuguese wines, such as the light and fruity PQW Rosé with aromas of cherry and wild fruits, the fresh and balanced red PQW reserva with an aroma of wild fruits and nuances of jams and the highlight of the evening, the young and vibrant Vinho Verde Vila Nova with floral aromas and notes of citrus fruits, perfect as a refreshing reward after climbing one of “Lisbon’s seven hills”.
The reception was a remarkable success and before the group entered the restaurant for their programmed dinner, they were delighted by the experience of sipping excellent Portuguese Wine with the magical View of the sun setting in the river Tagus.
