You're invited to join us for an outstanding tasting hosted by Jorge Nunes, International Brand Ambassador for Douro superstar for Graham's & Dow's Ports…

Jorge will be presenting the fabulous range of Ports from both of these legendary Houses. Taste across white Port, Ruby, variously aged Tawny's and we'll close with an aged vintage Dow's to finish. Come along and taste these exceptional Ports and see why Port is enjoying international resurgence.

It will be our great pleasure to welcome Jorge Nunes to our Lunn Ave Super Store as he presents the excellent Ports from Graham's and Dow's.

Founded in 1798, Dow's was the first British Port producer to invest extensively in premium vineyards, these superb vineyards are fundamental to the outstanding reputation that Dow's has long enjoyed.

W & J Graham's has been an independent family business for almost two hundred years, renowned for producing fine Port wines. Today, both companies are owned by the Symington family whose history in Port can be traced back 13 generations.

Graham's and Dow's exceptional wines will be paired with platters of cheeses, fruits and special chocolates, perfect for drawing out the sweet raisin-like, malt, dried fruit and rancio (nutty elements) of fine Douro Port.

Port has grown internationally with a new generation of younger drinkers appreciating the amazing richness and complexity and experimenting with fascinating food pairings and new ways of enjoying this unique and gorgeous wine.

If you're a long-time fan or want to capitalise on this rare opportunity to understand Port better, this evening with Jorge will be very special!
