We are three Swedish enthusiasts of port wine and Vintage Port in particular. Located in southern Sweden we are all members of the The Danish Port Wine Club est. 1981 and the Wine Society 18% in Malmö, Sweden.
We would like to thank the following for their generous offer of vintage ports which they have shared with us:
The late Ole Vesterdahl and his wife Gerda.
(Ole was the one as crazy as Sten in Port and introduced him in the Port Wine Club)
Anders G Åkesson
We would also like to thank:
The Danish Port Wine Club est. 1981
The Wine Society 18%, Malmö, Sweden
and of course our wives for their participation in our hobby.
‘The first duty of Port is to be red’
‘Wine is a drink for boys – Port for men’
‘Any time not drinking port is a waste of time’
‘The shortest way between two people is a smile - the lasting one a glass of Port!’

‘Be sometimes to your country true,
Have once the public good in view.
Bravely despise Champagne at Court,
And choosen to dine at home with Port’
Jonathan Swift 1793
‘If out of sort we stick to port
The medicine of soul
A ruby gleam - a tawny dream
The vintage is the goal’
