Re: Time for drinking vintage port

Well I guess the Delaforce was delicious. We had no problems with heat-waves in Sweden. This summer was the coldest since 1862 (sic). We should have started drinking vintage port earlier

Can anyone help us?

We have some vintage from 1931. Unfortunately 2 of those are B.O.B. One was bottled in Copenhagen by Oskar Davidsen and the other in Oslo by Kroepeliens Enke. Maybe someone in London or Oporto know which house the port came from because we think it is unnecessary to drink the same house twice the sa...

We know also of Gonzales Byass, Hooper, Silca Cosens and possible Real Velha

Thank you for the information you give on Chaplin, a wine merchant in London, some years ago. Excellent!
During Christmas we enjoyed Chaplin’s vintage 1945. (for tasting notes see: http://www.vintageport.se). Very attractive and interesting.
