Wines Of Portugal Happy Hour at Caracol

October 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


On Wednesday, October 24th, from 5 to 7 p.m., join H Town Restaurant Group beverage director Sean Beck and Eugenio Jardim, sommelier and current U.S. ambassador for Wines of Portugal, for a special happy hour at Caraccol. I’ve known Eugenio since his days working the floor at iconic San Francisco restaurant Jardinière,” says Beck. “He is, without question, one of the most charming and knowledgeable wine professionals around.” 

Portugal is one of the oldest wine-producing countries in the world, and Beck says that while it may be best know for the Port wines of the Douro Valley, the “reality is that Portugal makes an exceptional array of whites and reds, from bright and refreshing to rich and complex. We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of these amazing wines here on wine lists in the U.S.” 

A dozen different wines will be available to taste, as well as Portugese sangria, a seafood cocktails and ceviche bar and passed bites. The latter includes wood-roasted oysters, crispy pork tacos, Achiote-Rubbed Pork Ribs, Black Rice Croquettes and Heirloom Corn Quesadillas. The cost is only $30 per person, and after the tasting you can keep the party going with extended happy hour drink prices. For reservations, call 713-622-9996.
