London. The Annual Portuguese Tasting at Lord’s Cricket Ground. We are sharing a stand with Quinta do Passadouro who incidentally have a beautiful minerally 2008 dry white alongside their impressive Douro reds. We are perfectly placed opposite the main entrance so I can see who is coming and going. I spend much of the day in front of the table getting people I recognize to taste the wine. People are divided in their preference for the 2006 and 2007 which rather surprises me.
