Opened by Nuno Mendes in May 2015, Taberna do Mercado attempts to capture and reinterpret Portuguese food and flavours whilst championing specially sourced Portuguese ingredients.


Wine School

Taberna do Mercado is teaming up with Portuguese wine expert and wine writer Sarah Ahmed (the Wine Detective)! We’ve devised a monthly series of evening classes aimed at demystifying and showcasing the best wines from all across Portugal. Tickets cost £65 per person and include 8 to 10 wines per region and a home-style meal to be enjoyed at the end of the evening with your fellow students.

The schedule for our wine schools are as follows:

5th December 2017 – Fortified wine

January 2018 – Douro

February 2018 – Dao

March 2018 – Alentejo

April 2018 – Bairrada

May 2018 – Vinho Verde

June 2018 – Wildcards!


Dates for each event will be confirmed several weeks ahead via our newsletter (please sign up here) and booking enquiries should be made through wineschool@tabernamercado.co.uk. Please note that each session can only accommodate up to 15 students so book ahead to avoid disappointment! Attendees should also notify our team of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

We’re also available for corporate and private tastings! Please contact us through wineschool@tabernamercado.co.uk to find out more information.
