Hello

Post by wisden »

Hello

I am lucky/unlucky enough to know Dr Michael Charlton - he claims to be known around these parts. I have just returned from a rather delightful trip to Porto with him and some chums, where we tried some lovely ports, particularly at a Niepoort tasting. We also had the joys of going on the public Calem tour, I did end up with some nice Colheita from the shop though afterwards!

I'm based in Central London and hope to get along to some TPF events in due course.

I did the WSET L3 in Wine last year, and am doing their L2 in Spirits in Dec this year.

Thanks for reminding me, Oliver - I need to put a write up of the Niepoort visit on here! :shock:

Hello there, I'm also new to the Forum and was amongst the chaps along with Michael Charlton and Oliver that had a fantastic trip to Porto! The Niepoort tasting was a particular treat, particularly the Garrafeira!

Gentlemen, welcome to both of you.

I’m sure Michael has told you what a bad influence we are. We can’t wait for you to join us for one of our tastings and find out for yourselves.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
