Introducing myself

Post by lngn2 » 12:05 Thu 23 Jul 2009

Hi everyone.

I've recently signed up here and wanted to introduce myself. I'm not enormously knowledgeable about Port but enjoy the odd bottle occasionally - I first got interested by a bottle of Delaforce 1970 shared with a friend back in 2006. Otherwise I'm a big fan of Mosel Rieslings and am 'In the business' as an online auctioneer ('Bid for Wine').

I look forward to contributing and hopefully learning more!

Welcome to the port forum. It's always interesting to have people with a professional view of the wine world offering their thoughts and we might be able to help you as and when you have any particular questions on port.

Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

Hello there. 1970 is indeed a good year, reasonably priced and now drinking well. And I’ve also had some good Delaforce ’70 (e.g., e.g.).
