Celebrate Port Wine Day in Porto!

written by Gabriella Opaz | 5th September 2016

Now that autumn is upon us, there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t be cracking open a Port wine to celebrate the season. It warms the body when the winter chill seeps in. It’s versatile and perfectly suited for any conversation ranging from deforestation to the proliferation of sloths as pets. And beyond all else, there’s a flavor perfectly...

written by Ryan Opaz | 13th July 2016

Recently, I was enthroned into the Confraria do Vinho do Porto (Port Wine Brotherhood) as a Cavaleiro (Knight) in “recognition for my dedication and service to Port Wine.” Understandably, I was incredibly honored, but my invitation also came with several questions as to what exactly occurred.

Protect Yourself from Arctic Temperatures with Fortified Wine

written by Guest Blogger | 8th January 2015

My first experience with fortified wines consisted of a Ruby Port while looking at the Vila Nova de Gaia coastline in Porto. It was sublime!

Coravin – The only gift for wine geeks this holiday season

written by Ryan Opaz | 15th December 2014

I’m not a fan of wine gadgets, I never felt I needed them.
