Port is one of the most delicious wines in the world and these days, it is not just enjoyed at Christmas. Stand up and be counted Port-lovers a this is one of the great classics of the wine world and we will demonstrate that it is as valid today as it was 300 years ago.
Of course bottle-aged Vintage is the most famous style, but let’s not forget the more affordable fresh white Ports and wood-aged styles like Tawny, Crusted and LBV. We also want to show the versatility of this wine. Yes, port is great with Stilton, but we will also show you some other great food combinations such as chocolate!

We will help you discover its rich history, astonishing terraced vineyards and unique production process.

Although many of us had different levels of knowledge and experience with wine, we all enjoyed participating in the course and felt that we learned a great deal through Liz’s instruction. I particularly enjoyed making the Port cocktail and nibbling on the different cheeses and chocolates with each wine style. Yum! Who would have thought that Port can be so versatile… My only advice is, make sure you drink plenty of water during the class.
