From the Chair

Lisbon awaits us!

Situated on Portugal’s stunning Atlantic coast, Lisbon - the country’s capital and largest city - is waiting for us to come and experience its rich history, diverse culture and year-round pleasant climate.

Lisbon also boasts the Lisboa Wine Region, one of the country’s most diverse wine regions, known until 2008 as Estremadura. During the programme for this year’s International Final of the Chaîne’s Jeunes Sommeliers Competition, we will have the opportunity to tour this unique wine region that perfectly encapsulates the spirit and innovation of Portuguese viticulture.
