Some great Port Wine treasures kept secretly in American private cellars

A couple of weeks ago I was in Seattle. There were some good excuses to visit Roy Hersh: 1. to check if the weather in Seattle is so gray as people say? 2. does Roy have any other bottle in his private cellar besides Port Wine? 3. is Boeing developing a seaplane specially adapted to […]


Tasting Port Wine in Seattle with local Sommeliers at over 35º C (95º F)

During the last week after the Wine Bloggers Conference, I flew to Seattle to visit Roy Hersh, from FortheLoveofPort. Right after my arrival, we made a sightseeing tour through the Public Market Center and after that we rode the duck, a fun trip in a bus-boat around the center of Seattle, including a diving in […]


American Wine Bloggers Conference – a great opportunity to see how Californian wineries promote their wines

Last week-end took place in Sonoma and Napa, CA, the second American Wine Bloggers Conference (check here the agenda). As we in Quevedo decided to embrace wine social media one year ago, I thought it was worth the effort to come to the US and attending to this bloggers’ meeting. This was my very first […]

New friends visiting our winery – Welcome The Port Forum and For the Love of Port

During the last week-end we received at our winery some folks with who I use to talk online while they share their knowledge about Port in the forum For the Love of Port and The Port Forum. As you can imagine, while sitting with people that love so much Port Wine like these new friends […]


The First day of Vinexpo is Over – Not many people as expected

The first day of Vinexpo is over and I have to confess I was expecting more visitors. During the morning there were very few people. After lunch more people came over our stand to try our Ports and Douro wines. Our stand is integrated in the IVDP’s general stand as many others Douro producers. The […]
