This indulgent evening live on Zoom offers an excellent chance to get to know Port intimately. We will see how port is made and learn about the stunning Portuguese region it comes from.
It also gives you the chance to buy in your ports for Christmas and use them for our tasting evening.
You will taste your way through 3 carefully selected ports, and make some suggestions of 3 different cheeses to try with them. This is a mind-blowing experience for your tastebuds ... what fun!
We will taste a
Ruby Reserve Port
A Crusted Port
A Single Quinta Vintage Port
This will be a relaxed and eye-opening evening ... from the comfort of your own living-room, during which you will learn how Port is made and be surprised by the different styles. Experiment with some of the principles behind matching food to sweet wines like Port.
On booking we will send you the Zoom code and a list of recommended purchases for your port, which will easily keep after the tasting for your Xmas period enjoyment. The first two are easily googled though, The Single Quinta Vintage ports are much more affordable than full blown vintage (we'll explain why on the night) look for these amongst the most affordable (in no particular order):
Graham's Dos Malvedos (Tesco/Sainsbury's)
Warre's Quinta da Cavadinha (Waitrose)
Quinta do Bomfim (ASDA)
Taylor's Quinta do Terra Feita
Taylor's Quinta de Vargellas (Majestic)
Quinta da Roeda (Wine Society, available in half bottle).
