Quinta do Noval Wine Tasting with Deirdre
November 9, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Who could say no to a Quinta do Noval wine tasting?
Maybe a few of you could but that is only because you don’t know Quinta do Noval. One of the most famous of Port houses, Quinta do Noval is and has been royalty in Porto. Not only famous for making world-class wine but also famous for having one of the few pre-phylloxera vineyards in Europe, Nacional. Although we won’t be privileged to taste the Vintage Nacional as only 90 bottles made it to the US, we will be tasting their other Ports. Which brings us back to the original question; who could say no to a Noval wine tasting?
Port has long been misunderstood as it is so closely tied with dessert wine. Understandable considering it is rather sweet. But what if I told you that it isn’t just for dessert. That it is also for cocktails and can be used as an aperitif. It can. The reputation that Port is only a “dessert” wine is now a thing of the past. Mixologists, wine drinkers and cocktail lovers are embracing Port’s new found glory and so will you. With Deirdre at the helm of this tasting, we are going to be shown how Port is more than a dessert wine.
Looks like things have changed just a bit. Although we will still be sampling Noval, a few more items were just added to the lineup:
Bollinger Champagne Special Cuvee Brut NV
Domaine Talmard Macon-Chardonnay
Chateau Lyonnat Lussac-St-Emilion
