The New Douro - Grand Tasting 02-04 May, Porto

Imagine a tasting, - where you have enough space for everything (glasses, spitoon, notes, notebook etc) - where you can choose your own pace in silence - where you have your winelist and can choose your own tasting schedule - where the producers serve the wines and answer all the questions that aris...

Re: Thu 08 Jun - 67@50 2017

Hi Guys,

unfortunately I cannot make it to the 67 tasting. Wolfgang will bring the bottle of Ck and if the seat cannot be filled, I am happy to pay for everything coming up.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

All best

Re: Port corks with branding on the end

On some producers I can see the pattern that they always sidebrand the cork or never. On some there is no pattern transparent to me. Maybe a good discussion when we are together with "mixed" producers next time.

I have numerous Ports, who all have a side-branding. My first sweep through the first case brought up the following:

I am going to bring some with me. Either you drink them or share them with the US Port lovers. Strange that Roy never reported on this.

The New Douro - Grand Tasting 02-04 May

Next week many Douro-Wine and Port Producers will display their 2015/16 White wines, their 2015 reds and their 2015 Vintage Ports. In terms of Port 2015 will be a very strange year.
