Just wanted to let you know The Vintage Port Site http://www.thevintageportsite.com/
has just gone live with some upgrades. More information, more searchable and navigable was the idea behind this. On the Site and on the Graham's Blog are news items with a full list but the features I think you will like best:
Timeline so you have a visual of how many vintages were declared in any given year and across years - scroll - click on any bottle to see the notes for that Vintage Port (and the photo of the vines was taken 3 May at Quinta do Tua)
We now have concise brand profiles - see drop down list on left side bar to get access, or, under Port Basics menu go to page listing all brands with quick compare of flavour profiles for headline, then click through to see full profile. From any Brand Profile you can see a clickable list of all Vintages declared for that Brand and its Quinta Vintage Ports.
In tandem with that, the Quinta profiles for our brand-defining quintas have been input, these focus on the viti details of each quinta.
And what's most exciting to me - I have been given the go ahead to write more regularly for this site, and on a slightly wider range of subject matter -- always focussed on Vintage Port,of course, but will also start to do some viti updates from non-Graham's quintas and other brand news, as well as covering more tastings of non-Graham's (Rupert just told me about some Cockburn's verticals he will be doing later this year, for example, I hope to cover).
Finally, we have an "In the Press" page where we link to some of the most interesting articles about Symington Ports written by top critics and experts.
And stay tuned, because by the end of June we will be launching a mobile version of the site which will optimise the content and functionality for use on hand helds.
As always, love to have your feedback and suggestions. I think I may go sleep for a day or two now, but will always be in touch when awake! Thanks!
