I thought this was quite intriguing and although crowd-funding isn’t the sort of thing I usually go in for, I’ve “pledged” for a copy. I’d quite like, this year, to broaden my knowledge of Portuguese wines outside the Douro and this seems like a good way in.

Would anyone like to split a "2 Book" pledge with me - €30 per copy rather than €38 for a single copy?
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

I'd be in for that.

But I'm in Portugal and you're in the UK, I think we'd lose more on the subsequent postage than we'd save on the bundle :P

Hello all. Just thought I would chime in, since I"m one of the authors. Don't want to be spammy, but if anyone wants to ask me any questions or share any info, just let me know. I think I know quite a few people here from the Brotherhood events...How I long for a Gala dinner, been too long!

Hope all are well. Cheers,
Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Welcome to :tpf:! I’m really looking forward to this book. What sort of Ports are you into?

Best wishes,

Jacob
