Re: The philosophy of drinking old port

Re: Porto From London City

Civilised is the word! Left the office at 1 and got the flight out fine. Nice breakfast at Quinta de la Rosa - pick up by Manuel at 9 with plenty of time to catch the flight back and in the office for just after 3.
Full report of a long weekend in Porto and Pinhao to follow.

Glass Opacity

This is a topic we have discussed before, the trend for shippers to use darker glass meaning fill levels cannot be determined. This seems to me to have become more prevalent from the 1990's but I am sure there are members who have more knowledge here. In a recent Sotheby's catalogue I noted a number...
