Another port lover!

Post by raul_alex » 23:11 Sat 14 Feb 2009

Hello everyone!
I'm very pleased to be a part of this forum.
I live in Porto, the heart of Vinho do Porto, and I want to learn and share experiences about port wine.
I hope this is the beginning of a really good "wineship" :D

Happy tastings!

Welcome to :tpf:

Many of us here visit your home town every now and then so it is likely that an opportunity will come up so that we can meet and share some port.

Have fun here.

Do we call you Alex or Raul?

Welcome to :tpf:. As Derek says, we are often”  in your neighbourhood, and when you are in ours, join us for a bottle or few.

”  Meaning, so far, exactly once in my life.

Hey, very welcome.

Guys, you better be friendly to him as he is working at Grahams in VNG - and therefore is somebody you should not mess with...

I already had the pleasure meeting him and it really was a pleasure. Not only do I like the lodge, but also the possiblity to drink VP by the glass and Raul really organised a very relaxing and pleasant tasting up there.

Hello welcome on board, :D
Any time not spend drinking port, is a waste of time.
