David Bernard Talks Tejo Wine Tasting Tomorrow At Smith & Wollensky

Wine enthusiasts can indulge in an all-you-can-drink wine tasting celebrating the wines of Portugal at Smith & Wollensky tomorrow, Wednesday, October 10. The Tejo Wine Tasting offers 100 distinct wines from Portugal's Tejo region, a hilly place around the River Tagus.

Tejo offers quite a variety, from easy-drinking reds, roses, and fruity wines, to more complex finishes from the drier parts of the region. In anticipation of the event, we spoke with David Bernard, founder of the Miami International Wine Fair, about the Tejo Wine Tasting, trending wines, and the eternal conundrum -- to chill or not to chill.

Follow the jump for our Q&A with Bernard.
