PORT and SHERRY tasting with food matches
A dream night for all lovers of food and wine. This evening tasting in Manchester City centre is perfect for those who love Sherry and Port, and also for those who are yet to be converted to these delicious, complex and wonderful drinks.
Port is named after the City of Porto, where the wines are matured. Many of the most famous Port houses of Porto, are still owned and run by British families. The wine starts its life in the UNESCO World Heritage site of the beautiful Douro valley and is produced from a diverse range of Portugal's indigenous grapes varieties.
We have all heard about Port and Stilton, but what about Port and other cheeses? and even chocolate?

This is the drink which consistently surprises people and they often go forth with a new love for Sherry!
