Port wine extraordinaire スタイル別ポートワイン試飲会


Port wine is one of the world's great fortified wines, ideal for the Christmas and New Years holiday season. An aux nuages signature offering!

Port can be difficult to understand as few opportunities exist to try different Port styles back to back. With alcohol levels typically in the 19-20 percent range, served at the end of a tasting or a meal, it is easy to get tipsy after tasting only one or two of them!

We will take a somewhat unique approach to this challenge by tasting Port in two distinct episodes. One episode will feature bottle-aged Ports (Ruby, LBV, and Vintage), and the other barrel-aged Ports (Tawnies and Colheitas). Each episode will include a selection of Port wines alongside still or sparkling wines designed to help you understand more about Port wine, and to refresh the palate.

The Port selections we offer are made in a very modern style - fruitier, drier, and easier to approach either young or old. Worth trying! We will make sure to include some well-aged examples, plus some Port wines that are not currently available in Japan.

You can expect to taste about 7 Port wines in different styles, along with a similar number of still wines (primarily from Port's home region of Douro in northern Portugal). About 14-15 wines in total. Subject to availability, the wines will be available for purchase on the spot, or can be shipped anywhere in Japan.

Please note that participation in this event is limited to 15 persons.

Signup is now open, wine list will be available shortly.
