April also marks Earth Day.  And, to celebrate, Pourtal is very proud to present our EcoWinery Tasting Tour featuring 16 wines from around the world that take the extra step towards sustainable winemaking. (Starting April 5th)

Several Eco-friendly Winemaker events will be held throughout the month to honor our theme.
