Not just another press trip

I was lucky enough to be invited to Vinho Verde by the Comissão de Viticultura da Região dos Vinhos Verdes and Sopexa. We were 12 journalists from Canada and the United States to participate in this wonderful adventure.

Our guide from the commission
Gonçalo Rowett Rodrigues is a very professional young man and quite funny actually. He assisted us in our discovery of the different vineyard between the hills of Vinho Verde. The CVRVV is an interprofessional body whose purpose to represent the interests of the professions involved in the production and trade of the “Vinho Verde” Designation of Origin (DO) and the Indication Geographic (GI) «Minho».

Sopexa is a marketing agency specialize in food and drink business. The company represent the interests of many food products and beverages, including wines and spirits. They organize wonderful press trip, like this one, for professional around the world.


It was a wonderful experience and I want to personally thank Sopexa and the Vinho Verde region for this tour. We even had the chance to talk with the Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa!
