Port wine

Hi all,

I am realizing that I enjoy porto more and wanted to know a place where I can find a decent bottle at a reasonable price (in zurich)? I'm not much of a wine person so I wouldn't know where to start.

Try Zweifel in Höngg

http://www.zweifelweine.ch/

We buy DAVLA port from them - they have a variety of vintages and can highly recommend

I am also not a wine person and prefer port, we first tried this on the wine ships

Re: Port wine

I was just in Porto this weekend where we had a port wine tasting. We had a selection of Whites, Tawnys, and Rubys with a personal guide for almost nothing. There were port wine shops scattered throughout the city and people ordered port wine at the nightclubs.

I miss the days when you could just buy a few choice bottles and take them back in your carryon.

Re: Port wine

IIRC, Marinello at HB Shopville has a number of them on offer.

Re: Port wine

Can anyone recommend a savoury accompaniment to Port? And where could I find such a Stilton tasty product?

These nuts are great with Port.
With anything for that matter.
