Going to Portugal: Where they have wine & corks & PORT!

October 27, 2009

As I pour myself my usual evening port (Jonesy from AUS $9 at the Ventura WIne Company), I have to laugh to myself because it just now occurred to me that I would be in Portugal, land of PORT! Seriously, I’ve been thinking about the trip we’ll make to a cork forest, and traveling the Alentejo wine region with Enoforum Wines as my host and live blogging at the European Wine Bloggers Conference…and and being in EUROPE where I’ve never been and so much to think about with travel and passports and packing and and and

I realize that I will be in the land of Port. Wow. I think I’ll have a little more please. Thanks!

    I will not miss one post. Let me know if you got to taste some Eastern European wines (and I don’t mean Tokai) and what do you think about it.

    Thanks Ana! I hope to taste some Hungarian wines–there’s been a positive buzz lately: good value & interesting–and we’d like to visit friends there next summer.

    You need to try the Badacsony wine region and other Balaton area vineyards…:) And if your plane flies over PA -could you parachute some for me on your way back home. One cannot purchase any Balaton wines in the area, and due to their stupid state law one can not have the wine shipped from outside US either :(
    Moldavian wines is again very good (from what is called the Moldavian Republic nowadays). The Bulgarians make excellent red dry wine – very strong, very dry, very dark…(or they used to make excellent wine)
