Virtual Wine Tasting – February 15 – 6PM-7:30PM

Third Annual Valentine’s Day Port Tasting

It’s Valentine’s Day and we will once again taste Port! We will explore the Wonderful World of Port virtually on Feb 15 (from 6 to 7:30 ET). Port is one of the world’s best wines. There are many styles and we will taste two of them together: a vintage and a 20-year tawny as we learn all about port. What makes a wine port? How are ports made? How do you store and serve port? How to pair port with food?

This year we will add a third (optional) wine: an Italian sparkling wine that will pair well with chocolate!

We will taste:

  • Vintage Port – your choice of producer and vintage. Many are available in half-bottles (375ml). I will taste a Dow’s 2016.
  • 20-Year-Old Tawny – your choice of producer. Many are available in half-bottles (375ml) or 500 ml. I will taste a Dow’s 2016.
  • Optional (non-Port): a Brachetto d’Acqui sparkling wine from Piedmont, Italy


A Zoom calendar invite and a list of suggested desserts (and recipes) will go out to those who sign up by emailing Mary Ann.

As always, you are welcome to taste along with me: one, two or all three wines.

Please email MLEFEMIN@TRAVELERS.COM for a zoom calendar invite.
