Revised and updated third edition of the established standard book on Port. Long the Port guide for The International Wine and Food Society and required reading for the Wine Education Trust diplomas. As the world demand and prices for Port continue to climb, as new Quintas and shippers emerge, updated information from an established authority becomes indispensable. The fascinating history of the region and the trade along with detailed descriptions of the viticulture and winemaking techniques are covered. Special attention has been given to tasting notes and comments in new labels and a thorough updating of the Vintage charts and ageing potential of the great Ports. New information is provided on the changes in ownership, the role of great wine families, world market trends and viticultural and ecological technical advances. Valuable notes on tasting and evaluating Ports, Port with food and "Ports" from other countries are included.
