Happy to see lots of posts about a Port that we will launch in VinExpo HK next week, in London on 3rd June and New York on 4th June.
No David Guimaraens did not show any last week - his focus was on Vintage Port, showing some single varietal experimental batches from the early 90s, the great Vintage Ports we made in the 90s and introducing the new 2012 single quintas.
I may see some of you in London or New York. For reference Krohn did sell a small quantity on 1863 in a pack with 1896 (see: http://www.erobertparker.com/members/msquires/ms51.asp
) at US $13,000. This was with a silk screen bottle, a simple box, decanter and two glasses.
We look forward to showing you the packaging and price when we launch.
Wiess and Krohn is now fully integrated into our business with all the staff given new jobs and contributing to the team. We are planning to re-introduce foot treading at Quinta do Retiro Novo this harvest. The visitors' centre in Gaia is open as usual and welcome plenty of guests. The Krohn branded ports remain availble to purchase but not where those same wines have been used to create a Taylor product - Single Harvest 1964 and 1863.
Kind regards, Adrian Bridge
