Since many years 10 September is celebrated in Portugal and abroad with a (very nice) glass of Port – or two. Please join me in opening a decent bottle of Port and toast this to the many generations of people who made Port possible and so enjoyable – winemakers, famers, producers, bottlers, sailors, builders, coopers, viticulturists and many other professions over the centuries.

To support your favorite brand, do not forget to order another case of Port today for the next generation(s) to come and to supPORT the Port producers in these difficult times.

To Vinho do Porto and the 264 years of the Douro Demarcation – Saude!

With many great tastings....

I thought International Port Wine Day was January 27?

Edit: ah, I see, Port Wine Day is a Portuguese thing organized by the IVDP, while International Port Wine Day is a worldwide thing.

Shall celebrate this event by opening bottles of 83 Warre and Taylor tonight.

[Just to clarify, meeting up with a couple of friends - ie, not drinking two bottles by myself.]
