The Port Masterclass

February 9, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education LLC presents a very special evening …
The Port Masterclass
The event you’ve been waiting for!!


Fresh from an extensive trip to Portugal and the Douro Valley, I’m happy to announce an incredible Port class will be occurring on February 9th.
This will be a comprehensive discussion on the history of Port, the role of Quintas vs. Lodges, the amazing Douro River Valley, and of course the multitude of styles available.
We’ll be learning about the whole range of production: Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Crusted, Late Bottled Vintage, Colheita, and of course Vintage Port. We’ll discuss the differences between bottle aged and cask aged port, while covering the winemaking differences that will influence how you age these wines.
Of particular note will be an in-depth discussion on the type of Port to buy NOW, for the prices are starting to creep up and I predict will be sky-high in a matter of five to ten years.
And of course, just as with any Twin Cities Wine Education class, you can expect comprehensive handouts, articles, and maps on the topic. This will be a truly special class and I hope you can make it!
