Hello all,

I am Charles and live in Suffolk,

I explain/blame my taste for port on my Grandfather and Farther who introduced port to me and shared many a bottle from 1970 with me over the years.

I have enjoyed exploring more widely over the last year or so especially 1977's as I was born in that year.

Hope to be able to meet some of you at the London tastings and get togethers.

1970 is fine port indeed. Having learnt at the feet of the masters, you are already a master.

And ’77s, when not corked, can be excellent too.

Being brought up on 1970 vintage port is a hardship, but someone has to do it. Welcome to the place where we wish we could all have had the same upbringing.

And please do invite yourself along to one of our port tastings. They are all open to people who post on this site. The informal events are usually bring a bottle of vintage port and contribute about £40 to cover the cost of your dinner.
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)
