Kopke’s Award Winning White Port

How does a Master Blender make an award winning wine? Let Carlos Alves, Master Blender and Head Winemaker at Kopke take you through his thoughts as he presents a direct comparison of a single harvest wine with a blended wine of the same age, both matured in wood before being bottled specifically for this tasting.

Using a selection of White Ports from the stocks of Portugal’s oldest Port house, this tutored tasting will look at the way in which Port ages in barrel over the years until achieving stunning levels of complexity and intensity.

You’ll never think of White Port in the same way again!
