Portalis in Ballard is holding a holiday port tasting this Friday, December 10.
A $19 fee includes 1. A $10 store credit (Portalis is both a wine bar and a wine shop). 2. Half-ounce pours of seven fortified wines from two Portuguese porteries (that’s not a real word). 3. Food pairings.
These are the ports to be tasted:
Porto Rocha NV Lagrima White Port
Porto Kopke 10y White Port
Porto Rocha 1994 Colheita Tawny Port
Porto Kopke 10y Tawny
Quinta De La Rosa NV Finest Ruby
Quinta De La Rosa 2003 LBV Ruby
The tasting lasts from 6:30 to 7:30pm. It sounds like a festive way to start a night out on Ballard Ave but don’t forget to eat during and after—port sneaks up on you like nobody’s business.
Call Portalis to reserve.
