The New Douro - Grand Tasting 02-04 May

Post by Axel P » 07:23 Wed 26 Apr 2017

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. It will not be an anonymous declaration, but from what I have seen/tasted so far - the quality is there.

Amongst the producers will be: Casa Ferreirinha (Sogrape Vinhos) / Chryseia (Prats & Symington) / Duas Quintas (Ramos Pinto) / Duorum / Niepoort
/Nova Quinta do Sagrado / Poeira / Quinta de la Rosa / Quinta da Boavista & Tecedeiras / Quinta da Gaivosa (Alves de Sousa) / Quinta de São José / Quinta do Crasto / Quinta do Passadouro / Quinta do Pessegueiro / Quinta do Vallado /Quinta dos Murças / Quinta Nova / Quinta Vale D. Maria / Quinta Vale Meão / Real Companhia Velha / Sogevinus /Symington Family Estates / Vertice / Wine&Soul - Organised by Wine&Partners.

More next week...

Where is the tasting taking place?

(am guessing "anonymous declaration" may be an auto-correct error? "we've declared a vintage port, but we're not telling you who we are"!)

Hi Axel, can you give some more details about the tasting? Is it only for professionals or also open to the public and if yes, what is the entrance fee? What are the opening hours? Although I live in NL I would love to be there!

Unfortunately this is by invitation only. We are only 14 journalists from all over the world.
