Port wine has an amazing history and tradition, inextricably linked to the fondness of British palates for sunshine preserved through winemaking and fortification. But unlike Sherry, whose history is very similar, Port has in the last few decades flourished and continues to be a popular and widely desired drink. In this tasting we will investigate how leading producers are continuing to keep Port relevant, incorporating modern vineyard and winemaking practices that ensure quality has never been higher.
We can look forward to a superb four course meal from the Salon Privé that will demonstrate Port’s versatility as a food wine as well as an aperitif or digestif.
Fine wine tasting dinners are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and also runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies. He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery. Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.
