🍷…Port wine…🍷

Port wine originates from Porto, Sherry from Spain and Madeira from Madeira. Three different fortified wine products with different names.  This and a lot more we learned during a  Port wine tasting today along the old lodges of River Douro, the place where it all started in the year 1756! Arranged by the Douro Marina, we enjoyed good accompany from Kate from Churchills Ports, who took us through the whole program. After 2.5 hours and lightly tipsy we placed our order and proceeded with strolling through this lovely city…

The world has two more Port wine fans. The unfiltered LBV was very tasty, the Vintage from 1997 was my favourite but is perhaps less affordable.

    Da wird Frau Sauer traurig sein, dass Ihr ihr untreu werdet! 🍷

  2. Ahoi Edith & Horst, vielen Dank für den Kommentar. Der Portwein ist schon sehr speziell und (noch) nicht im Repertoire von Frau Sauer. Insofern werden wir dem Weingut Sauer für den Tagesbedarf weiterhin treu bleiben. Allerdings bin ich mir sicher, dass beim nächsten Treffen mit Frau Sauer interessanter Gesprächsstoff vorhanden sein wird, da die Weinregion Douro in Portugal interessante Alternativen zu bieten hat.
    Wir wollen jetzt den Madeira (Port) Wein testen, um einen direkten Vergleich zu haben mit unserer letzten Weinprobe in Porto.
