Bairrada launches sparkling wine “Fatima’s Apparitions Centenary” and offers nº1 bottle to Pope Francisco, handed personally at the 26th of April, in the Vatican.
It is celebrated this year the centenary of Fatima’s Apparitions, and in a way to highlight this event, the “Comissão Vitivinícola da Bairrada” (Wine Comission of Bairrada) has joined to “Associação Rota da Bairrada” (Bairrada Route Association) to produce a commemorative sparkling wine under the label “Bairrada: '1917-2017 Centenário das Aparições de Fátima - Espumante Bairrada 2015”, all with the support of producers and related companies.
Jorge Sampaio- President of “Rota da Bairrada” and Pedro Soares- President of Comissão Vitivinícola da Bairrada went to the Vatican in order to deliver the first bottle personally to Papa Francisco. This was a remarkable moment for Bairrada history!
The chosen bottle for this special occasion was “Espumante Sedução” (Seduction Sparkling Wine), from Verallia Portugal.
