Portugal, Spain and Georgia


Chefs, wine bar and more!



23 – 25 FEV 2024

Alfândega | Porto


what is simplesmente… Vinho?

simplesmente… Vinho is an off salon, an independent and alternative event, which brings together vignerons united simply… by Wine.
Wine that respects the land and terroir, the vineyard and grapes, people and traditions.
Wine that simply… wants to be wine, drunk, enjoyed, shared.
Honest wines, with a healthy dose of madness and poetry.

This is the twelfth edition and brings with it the redemption of an old dream: having Georgia as a special guest.
Georgia is the world’s birthplace of wine, with references dating back 8000 years. And wine is still made today, in several places, according to this ancient tradition, fermented in Qvervi. Furthermore, wine production plays a highly relevant role in Georgia, a symbol of tradition and resistance and stands as an unique cultural landmark.
For this celebration, we invited 10 reference vignerons and vigneronnes with a diversity of styles, grape varieties and geography, as well as typical gastronomy, music and art.

You already know, we are not we without roots and traditions and new emotions and we find all of this simply… in the historic Alfândega do Porto building.
That’s where we will be from the 22nd to the 25th of February, next to our beloved Douro.

The twelfth edition of the Porto salon presents 112 vignerons from Portugal and Spain, and a further 11 from Georgia.

As it is a special edition, it starts one day earlier, on Thursday 22nd, at the Alfândega with an enticing program: a conference, the film “Our Blood is Wine,” and a wine tasting of Qvevri and Talha. And because celebrating for us also means giving back, the Supper Supra of that day includes a Solidarity Art + Wine Auction, in addition to the performance of the award-winning ensemble Shvidkatsa. There are 55 unique and unrepeatable lots, each consisting of an artwork and sets of wines from 2 different vignerons. An excellent investment in Art and in Aromas and Flavors! Profits go to two institutions, Humanwinety and SOS Cabedelo, bringing together humanity and ecology on an expectedly unique night. The 2024 Art show is the Exhibition of the 55 artists from the solidarity auction. Not to be missed!

In addition to wines, there are petiscos from wine-friendly restaurants. Nothing better than friends and good food to enjoy sincere wines: we have a restaurant area so you can simply… dine with us, have brunch or lunch on Sunday the 25th or try specialty coffee! Genuíno, Cella, Brites, Forneria São Pedro and Senzu Coffee Roasters are some of the names who are joining our celebration!
Also count on Georgian wines at Vinha Láctea, the newest wine bar.

Expect also new things at simplesmente… Wine Bar.

And the cherry on the cake, oops, orange seal on the tanning bottle, live music every day!

Everything simplesmente… waiting for you at Alfândega do Porto!
