Hi from Zurich

Post by PortClub26 » 17:33 Mon 25 Nov 2013

Hi to all,

Just joined today and looking forward to sharing some drinking experiences.
I live near Zurich in Switzerland, although I hail from South of London. Not really sure after 20 years in this country what I am.

Port helps to keep my sanity in check, a wonderful drink which I can't stop buying. Drinking is somewhat slower, but I'm progressing nicely. :lol:

Welcome to :tpf:

How fortuitous that your parents thought to give you such an appropriate name :cool:

Now that two admins have massaged your feet, checked in your bags and poured you a glass, please do come and relax with us in the lounge! Are there many port drinkers in Zurich, and is there much port available (other than at Sotheby's)?

Many thanks for the hearty welcomes

Yes indeed there is a great deal of Port in zurich, although the Swiss dont seem to be so keen at the moment. Will have to kick a few people into action I feel.

I am in London a couple of times a year and i would enjoy a get together with new people. Likewise if someone finds themselves in zurich, although the official tasting occasions are rarer over here.

Let us know when you are coming, and probably something can happen that evening.
