recolté or vintage

My dear friends, As a noob I am still wondering what the difference is between an Recolté wine and a vintage wine. I have a few bottles which are marked with the indication Recolté. There are different opinions what this really is. Some say it's a colheita and others are saying it's a vintage. Btw, ...

Re: Latest buy

Good on you Gerwin, I lost the 18x Ware's :cry: One minute before ending they came over me. Tried to get it anyway but when the price came up to €400,- I stopped. Bugger!!!

Re: Latest buy

Have you tried it already? I know it's a 0.5 l but still worth it. I have two in my collection and really want to try the '63 too. I have tasted the '52 and that one is the top of whites in my humble opinion.

Re: Latest buy

http://www.qtastaeufemia.com/Images/vinhos/Porto/LBV2007.jpg A 2007 LBV at €17 per bottle seems good, though I don’t know how good is the Quinta Santa Eufêmia . You have to try Quinta de Sta. Eufemia some time. It's a small house with remarkably good tawnies. The 30 and 40 years are really worth bu...

Cellar management systems

Hi all, I am curious what kind of cellar management systems you are using. In the past I was using just a Excel sheet. Since I made my latest inventory I wanted to use something else. As a Dutchman I don't want to pay for expensive software :wink: So I did find this on the web : http://manageyourcel...

Re: Hello from NL

Hi, How I started with Port?? Well, when I was young we had always a bottle of el cheappo Sugar water in stock. One day a friend came by and wanted a glas of Port. When he tasted it, he said: This is no Port. So hold a moment, I'll be right back. ( He was living very nearby). He came back with a cou...
