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

You have to put in a schedule, but it works. You eventually get used to it. For Port they didnt explain enough, I thought.

Looking forward to seeing you soon

Re: 2015 declarations

Actually I am saying that I have no problems at all with the 2015 Vintage Ports. Just tasted the Niepoorts yesterday: http://worldofport.de/Wein/tasting/Niepoort/00Niepoort.html I do not understand why some of the producer's 2015s are not approved at the first time, but their 2014s were, although th...

Quinta de La Rosa - New Restaurant

Sophia Bergqvist opened her new Restaurant "Cozinha da Clara" on the weekend, very central, very stylish, extremely good food and a very nice view on the river. With 21 bedrooms now, she is one of the most central and attractive hotel-Quintas in the Douro. This Port was served: http://worldofport.de...

Re: 2015 declarations

Just back from the Douro... It seems that some producers are still in line to have their Ports approved. Some even are doing it for the second time. I have some problems with that as all of their 2014 have passed at the first time and are a lot weaker in style. So we are looking for quite some produ...

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...
