Re: Portweinmesse 26 November 2021

Where can you: - taste almost all Vintage Ports from 2018 and 2019 (and many 2017s as well)? - taste a 70y old Tawny Port and learn that this might be a new category soon? - taste more than 50 year old Vintage Ports in a specially selected Masterclass? - have a small vertical tasting of the rare Con...

Re: Portweinmesse 26 November 2021

Well, so far we are planning to GO. Maybe we have to alter the procedures a bit. I wrote to the producers very recently and received many responses already. Confraria Ports are already there... I am pretty sure I will allow attendance only to those tested, vaccinated or recovering from a Covid infec...

Port charitiy auction

As many of you have seen the catastrophic pictures in Germany, the Federal German Wine Organisation VDP has asked for donations to help the suffering producers. To supPORT this initiative, I am willing to sell one of the very rare 5 Liter O-PORT-UNIDADE Vintage Port bottles (less than 20 were bottle...

Re: Another hard day at work

If there ever is a Pre-Corona Vintage somewhere in the future, this is it.

I am mentioning this because finding people for the harvest seems to be a very hard job to do for the producers in the last couple of years. And Covid contributed to this.

Re: Wednesday 28th April 2021 - Online Churchill tasting with the Port Forum

Pick the chances. I had a leftover bottle from one of the last Portweinmessen and totally forgot what it was (no label, no capsule inscription) and just opened it: and the corc gave it away: thumbnail.jpg It is the Vieira de Sousa Agua Alta Vintage Port 2016. Great Port. One to look out for. Especia...

Re: Portweinmesse 26 November 2021

Given the proximity of this event to my brother's family, I'm interested in attending (he's based in Pulheim). There seems to be limited information on the website, but I'll certainly keep an eye on this thread. More than welcome, but do not plan to go there by car afterwards as we will have a comm...
