Pessoa Wine Spot – The New Home of Pessoa!02 March - 2021
We recently opened an exclusive space in the city of Castelo Branco.
The Pessoa Wine Spot is located in the heart of the old town of Castelo Branco.
Easy to find in the emblematic and historic Praça de Camões on the corner with Rua do Relógio.
Our concept describes itself as a Wine Store, Wine Bar, Tasting Room, Wine School, Gourmet Grocery Store, Design Furniture Exhibition and the place where you have to be!
A space dedicated to culture, good music, vegetarian snacks and of course the entire range of Pessoa Wines.
We also use the space to teach tasting classes and philosophize about wine.
And more … the wonderful furniture of our friend Jorge Batista! A Great Master Joiner who designs and produces design furniture as well as restores contemporary and historic furniture. We are proud to be able to show and use Jorge’s jewels on a daily basis to decorate Pessoa Wine Spot. It is obvious that our customers are invited to know the pieces and after falling in love with them, buy them!
Another very cool thing about Pessoa Wine Spot is the Showcase a Friend : once a month we invite a wine producer we’re friends with. It can be Portuguese, Spanish, South African or Chilean – so it can be from all over the wine world. We use our space to make their wines known. So we take a trip around the world through wine.
In January 2021 it was the turn of Weingut Meine Freiheit (Germany) with the presence of the wonderful winemaker Sabrina Schach. We put her fabulous sparkling wines for tasting to our customers. Many were positively surprised by the quality of the sparkling wines that are at the level of great Champagne classics. There were many constructive conversations about viticulture and wines in Germany.
