Paula Green – Speaker

Vintage Port is made only in good years and 1994 was an outstanding year that resulted
in rich, but not overripe, wines. These wines are now 30 years old, and ready to enjoy even
though we could be convinced that they have decades ahead of them. We have a great
selection of eight wines, with the expected star of the evening being the Taylor Fladgate. But wait, the single vineyard  Quinta da Eira Velha is a worthy challenger for the gold medal. Alas, given the lineup that you will find detailed below, the wine-of-the-night is not a slam dunk.

The wines will be carefully decanted and the chef will prepare canapés to complement
the wines. Paula Green will be your speaker and her enthusiasm and knowledge of Port
will enhance your experience. Paula possesses her Intro Court of Master Sommelier
and she is currently taking Certified Sommelier courses with one of Canada’s six Master

Further, ViniPortugal certifies that Paula obtained the degree of “Wines of
Portugal Ambassador”. Can you think of a better way to spend a chilly winter evening?
