Re: How do you drink yours?

I often use a glass for white wine. It's Weissweinkelch series VINO GRANDE from Spiegelau. http://www.amazon.de/Spiegelau-Wei%C3%9Fweinkelch-Vino-Grande/dp/B001IILG2O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1251804531&sr=1-1 I'd say this one looks like a pipe. http://www.amazon.com/Oenophilia-Porto-Decant...

Re: NYC tasting with Quevedo Port Wine 7/21/2009

We had a great time with the folks of the TPF in NYC. As a producer, I'm really glad to see the passion for Port Wine all these guys showed. I'll probably go to the Netherlands some day in the first weeks of November. I hope I can meet there some more Port enthusiasts! Hi Oscar, Speaking for myself...

Re: Is port a lot cheaper in Portugal?

Hi All, I am planning to buy some 2007 VP's and am currently looking at the pricing in Holland which appears to be very expensive. The Fonseca for example costs 472,50EUR for 6 bottles which to be fairly honest is too high for me. Yet I do want them :twisted: So, therefore I am wondering what the p...

Re: Out of Curiosity

I'm one of the lightweights too in this matter. I am probably good for about 10-12 bottles of port a year, so far. On one hand, because I have just started buying/collecting Vintage ports (with 2005 as the first vintage of which I bought quite a lot of), and these bottles need some more time to matu...

Re: So, (what) will you be buying from the 2007's?

My 2007 VP orders (so far, combined with the ones that my father ordered) are: For me this is quite a lot of bottles VP of one vintage, given the prices and the fact that I'm not drinking VP on a daily basis. On the other hand, my youngest son was born in 2007, so as I am hoping to enjoy a lot of t...

Hello everybody!

Hi everyone, I've been following many of the topics on the PortForum for some time now, and realized it would be nice to join you all port-enthousiasts. I'm a wine and port enthousiast for some years now (wine for about 18 years, port for about 4 years), and it 'll be great to sometimes share some o...
