We encourage you all to enjoy a good glass of Port Wine to celebrate the Port Wine Day, today September 10.
During this terrible Corona times we have in the family tried to taste at least one new Port every weekend on the terrace – keeping the distance safe. Sorry to say we have not managed to do so every weekend but since the 27th of March we have tasted more than 25 new Vintage Ports!
We have really enjoyed these weekends sometimes started with a nice bottle of Champagne! We will try to continue these weekends as long as corona is still here. Hope you will do the same. We are also planning for some tastings in our wine club. First tasting will be a unique tasting of Vintage Port 1985, where we plan to taste 59 different brands over two days! We are looking forward to this with great expectations.
This week there is an extra chance to taste some port to celebrate the Port Wine Day on Thursday September 10. This day was selected to commemorate the demarcation of the Douro wine region on September 10, 1756.
Sten, one of the authors on vintageport.se have been celebrating September 10th with port wine every year since 1976, the year he fell in love with the wonderful enjoyment port wine brings.
His celebration on this day is due to his birthday, this year celebrated for 75 years. We all hope you will have a nice glass of Vintage Port that day.
Celebration of the Port Wine Day is also celebrated on September 10th on the day when its designation of origin was created, in 1756.
