Four years ago Wednesday, FTLOP came into being. The "official" online presence, both the website and Forum were turned on.
We've rarely looked back except with a nostalgic view, to see the humble beginnings of the community which has continued to grow and prosper and we only have YOU to thank.
I hope that you will all open a special bottle of Port this week; host a Port-athon; get together with friends or other
members and share a great bottle or three!
In the spirit, I will be putting on a Port tasting for a dozen local restaurant Sommeliers on Wednesday morning to do my part to share some extraordinary Ports with these ladies and gentlemen.
Not content with celebrating with mere strangers, I have invited 7 guests ... most from
to come over on Thursday night to celebrate in Port style. 8 men ... beginning with 8 bottles of Port. We'll see how things progress but the lineup is impressive.
If I can ask one favor?
Please feel free to post in this thread, but should you choose to partake in the festivities ... opening something special ... PLEASE POST YOUR PORT TASTING NOTE IN THE APPROPRIATE PLACE.
Whether you are
or an old seasoned
veteran ... I would like to thank you for your participation and adding to the progressive "Collective Port Wisdom."
That goes for you lurkers too!
