Port tasting with Chris Forbes from Taylor’s Port House.
November 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm€45.00
This is a not to be missed tasting! We’re delighted to welcome Chris Forbes from Taylor’s Port back for his now annual tasting here.
For many, Taylor’s is the archetypal Port house and its wines the quintessential Ports. Established over three centuries ago in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses. It is dedicated entirely to the production of Port wine and in particular to its finest styles.
Based in Oporto and the Douro Valley the company is closely involved in all stages of the production of its Ports, from the planting of the vineyard and the cultivation of the grapes to the making, ageing, blending and bottling of the wines.
The charismatic Chris will talk and taste us through three different Port houses and the different house styles. We’ll look at wines from Taylor’s, Croft and Fonseca and the various styles of wines produced.
Chris will also introduce us to the newly released wine from the Taylor’s Historical Collection as well as a rare chance to taste the recently declared 2016 vintage prior to release.
A light supper will be served to accompany the wines tasted on the evening.
