What an incredibly enjoyable and interesting journey through Portuguese wine and port. Delicious food pairings with the wines and ports with very knowledgable host. Highly recommended wine tasting with absolutely no pressure to buy afterwards. Who knew the Portuguese produced such high quality wines.
