Contemporary Videos on Port

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

There has been an absolute plethora of distanced video chats and interviews about Port created over the last few months. As and when someone discovers one, please post here:
  • The Wine Society held a short interview with Francisco Olazabal in the cellars of Quinta do Vale Meão on 3 February 2015, which can be found on the Wine Society YouTube channel. There is also a slightly earlier interview with him on 9 January 2015 recorded in the house at the Quinta.
  • 67 Pall Mall Port evening with Demetri Walters leading a tasting of 1980 Warre, 1977 Fonseca, 1970 Graham, 1966 Taylor, 1963 Taylor and 1963 Graham Colheita. 13 May 2020 on the 67 Pall Mall YouTube channel.

Ana starts 3'10" into the video, which is introduced by the organisers of the Winchester Wine Festival.
  • Konstantin Baum MW opened bottles of Burmester 2011 Colheita and Burmester 1863 Garrafeira (decanted 1932, bottled 1942) on his YouTube channel on 16 May 2022. His impression and description of the smell and taste of the wine is something to see!

Any suggestions on how to index this list would be welcome!
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!
