The G7 Consortium hosted an exclusive cruise around the island of Manhattan Thursday night, giving those on board the Romantica Yacht a special taste of wines from Portugal. G7 is made up of the top five Portuguese wine purveyors: Aliança, Aveleda, Bacalhoa, José Maria da Fonseca and Messias. The evening included more than 25 wines from many of the country’s diverse terroirs, starting at Vinho Verde in the North to the Peninsula de Setubal in the south.  The three-hour sunset cruise also featured flavorful foods to pair with the libations, including lobster rolls from Luke’s lobsters, seared Kobe beef and salmon ceviche from Sushi Samba, Korean small plates by chef Jennifer Maeng, and bite-sized “ditch dog” hot dogs from Marc Murphy’s Ditch Plains.
