Portugal, a country that used to live in the shadows of more popular European peers like Spain, is suddenly the hottest place on the continent. As everyone jet sets off to Lisbon for a week of perfect weather and good food and wine, New Yorkers were lucky enough to have Portugal come to them at the 2018 Vinho Verde Wine Experience in Chelsea. Various Portuguese winemakers flew in and provided generous pours of their wine, which were paired with delicious bites and commemorated by attendees via photo booth and rooftop selfies.
