I am very excited to announce that The Center for Wine Origins and I have organized the inaugural Port Day celebration for Friday, January 27th, 2012. Why did we do this you may ask? Well, I personally feel that Port, which incidentally only comes from Portugal, deserves not only wider recognition as one of the vinous wonders of the world but that there is a lot opportunity to expose the broader wine drinking public to this beverage. This day is an opportunity for not only producers, but wine educators, geeks, blogs, mainstream media, and the general public to put down their Cabernet and Chardonnay and join in a global celebration and education centered around Port.
Participating is easy. Join the#PortDay celebrations online by blogging, tweeting, posting and sharing your thoughts about this exceptional wine by using the#PortDay hashtag. Or, you can host or join one of the numerous retail and restaurant tastings that are being planned in locations across the United States.
