As a new boy on the site, thought you might like to see my short video (3mins) of a buyers trip I was lucky to do with Mentzendorff and Taylors at Vargellas, then Oporto and the Yeatman hotel. It's a YouTube link, and apologies for the sound (and the soundtrack!) but a picture is worth a thousand words etc etc - did this for our customers to see some of the processes. This was in September 2010 and we missed the vintage port harvest and foot treading by a day or so, but we did get to see the robotic lagars for the volume production ports. You'll see Adrian Bridge, MD of Taylors in the tour.
