Thanks Michael for the deal. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Grahams-Crusted-Port-Carton-Wine/dp/B01H0H0ULY/ref...

TPF awards ceremony

By popular demand I feel like every year we should have an award ceremony as part of the TPF. One award should be for the best tasting note. Am very happy to attend the awards dinner +1 I suggest we have The Port Forum awards ceremony! We should have a discussion over suitable categories (see post b...

NV Graham Crusted 2013

Tasted on 22/07/22 decant +5hrs. This is my first ruby Port i've had in some considerable amount of time. Oh how I've missed it. A lovely, fruity nose with a hints on violets. It's a big Port. Coats the mouth and hyper sweet raspberries. It has a very long length which get perhaps a little sickly. G...

However, Waitrose currently have Graham 2015 lbv reduced to £10.99/bt.
I think that deal may have been live all but a few hours. I grabbed four.

Free Festa ticket (London only) 25th June evening session

Hi team, I won two tickets for Festa (by Bar Douro) at Tobacco Docks in London 25th June 5pm-11pm through Port.Club. After trying to sort any form of transport or cheap accommodation, I failed. Jamie Graham is happy for me to pass on the ticket.

Who wants it?

Additionally, following the great tasting we had today, if you happen to be a new laithwaites purchaser (or stumble across a new email) then I'd suggest using NME40Q4 To get 40 off 110.

I've been explicitly told to post deals I find.

If you have an American Express card, you can currently get 20 off 100 there. Doesn't seem to be any particularly great port bargains but please, go ham.
