Had a great time last night at the conference dinner. The food was bad, but the company was good and the wines were excellent. I’m pictured above with a magnum of Charme 2007. Dirk Niepoort also brought along Redoma 2007, Batuta 2007 and a host of colheitas.
A new discovery for me: Dona Berta. Superb old vine Rabigato (white) and also a beautiful, fresh, mineral, grippy Tinto Cao. And they’re not expensive.
