Step into the world of elegance and tradition with our Port Wine tasting, an immersive experience that celebrates the rich history and diversity of one of Portugal’s most iconic treasures—Port wine. This journey isn’t just about tasting; it’s about discovering the soul of Port wine, from its deep roots in history to its vibrant role in contemporary culture.

Port wine, the pride of Portugal, boasts a distinction as one of the oldest protected wine regions in the world, established in 1756. This experience offers you a unique opportunity to explore the vast array of Port wines—White, Red, and Rosé—each with its spectrum of sweetness and hue, all paired meticulously with bites designed to elevate their flavors.

Our affair with Port wine begins with a warm welcome into the world of 21st-century Rosé Port. Here, innovation meets tradition, resulting in a fruity, sweet wine ideal for sipping as a cocktail. As we savor this modern twist on a classic, we’ll share insights on fully appreciating Port wine, setting the stage for a journey of taste and camaraderie.

Venturing further, we explore the nuances of White Port Wine, starting with a dry variety that introduces the palate to this category’s crisp and subtle complexities. The journey through white ports continues with a sweeter, fruitier selection, culminating in a vintage experience showcasing these wines’ depth and intricacy.

Our narrative then transitions to the storied realm of Red Port Wines. Here, you’ll encounter the richness of Tawny wines, distinguished by their aging process in oak casks, which imbue them with a fresh, complex, and woody character yet remain exquisitely balanced. A Ruby Port offers a contrasting experience, bursting with full-bodied fruitiness, a testament to the blend of wines from various harvests. The exploration reaches a crescendo with a rare Crusted Port. This treasure ages for two years in wooden barrels and is bottled without filtration, offering an authentic taste of tradition.

The “Port Wine Affair” is more than a tasting; it’s a voyage through time and flavor, where each sip tells a story of heritage, craftsmanship, and the enduring allure of Port wine. As you journey from the revolutionary Rosé to the esteemed Crusted, you’ll deepen your appreciation for Port wine and forge a connection with its timeless legacy. Join us for this affair, where history is savored in every glass, and the essence of Portugal is celebrated with every pairing.
