The event moved to Marvila and received more than 1200 visitors
The Adegga WineMarket Lisboa transformed Armazém 16, in Marvila, into a tasting room with wines from 15 regions, gathering 70 winemakers to offer more than 500 selected wines. With 1,200 tickets sold, the event sold out on the day before and challenged wine lovers, beginners and professionals to discover new ways of experiencing the wine culture in Lisbon.
In one of the city’s most iconic neighbourhoods, the Adegga team created a full tour around the wine world for different tastes and motivations: from Adegga 52, with the choices of producers, to Adegga Ânfora – an exclusive room for wines ageing or fermentation in clay amphoras –, from Adegga Bio (a selection of organic, biodynamic, sustainable and natural wines) to Adegga Rising Stars, highlighting new projects and rising winemakers, or also the list of 50 Best Values up to 20 euros by André Ribeirinho, visitors had access to different tasting experiences and were able to discover new references.
“On the day before the event, our ticket office was sold out. The Adegga WineMarket is ready to sell a thousand tickets and, depending on demand, we decided to add a further 200 tickets that have also sold out. It was the first time that a wine event in Portugal sold out and, of course, we are proud to create a completely different experience that clearly appeals to the public. This growth results from our search for new consumers for Portuguese wine”, says André Ribeirinho, Adegga co-founder.
Adegga is the only event with a Premium Room where rare and special wines may be discovered and it is also exclusive for the consumer who seeks quality, diversity and convenience in the same value proposition: a unique opportunity to taste and choose wines for Christmas shopping, the pop-up online store created at Armazém 16 enabled the purchase of more than 500 wines at special prices to be delivered free of charge in orders of six, twelve or more bottles.
The move to Marvila occurs in the years on which the project completes 10 years and assumes an orientation increasingly focused on the consumer and the consumption experience. After 27 editions, the Adegga WineMarket will return in 2019 with more news and a closer approach to urban culture.
