Event Description

Indulge yourself in a very special tasting dedicated to Port, one of the world's most unique wine styles. 

This tasting will take you through the history of Port from the 1st recorded shipment in 1678 to the modern day. We'll explain what makes it one of the world's most fascinating wines and the difference between the main styles.

The evening kicks off with an aperitif made using a White Port and includes a tasting of six different Ports covering all the major Port styles including Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), Tawny and a highly rated Vintage Port from the universally declared and critically acclaimed 1985 vintage.

Of course, fine Port deserves good cheese so we've also paired a couple of the Ports with some equally fine cheese for you to enjoy. To get you in the festive spirit you'll enjoy the Tawny Port paired with a Mince Pie!

This tasting will include the following wines:

  • A tangy White Port used as a base for an aperitif-style long drink
  • A crusted Port from a leading Port house bottled in 2013
  • A premium unfiltered LBV style Port
  • A Single Quinta Vintage Port from Warre's
  • A 20 year old Tawny Port
  • A taste of Fonseca 1985 Vintage Port awarded 93 points by Robert Parker

A must for all Port fans!
