Port Wine Tasting Event

Port Wine Tasting Event

Thursday, November 30, 2017

6:30 pm (One Session)

Join us, Thursday, November 30th, as we taste our way through
the fortified wines of Portugal and discover just how
complex and nuanced they can be.

For this event we will only be tasting during one session starting at 6:30 pm. As per usual, our own John Johnson will be leading the tasting as we see why Port can be so much more than a dessert wine.

and let us know how many of your group will be attending.

Hope to see you then!
