#winelover 2015 – visit to José Maria da Fonseca @Setubal
Photos from the #winelovers' visit to José Maria da Fonseca @Setúbal. Although they have a considerable range the real interest here are their wonderful Moscatel de Setúbal – the company obviously agrees as they put on four examples to taste and then completely spoilt us by serving the 1911 at the end of dinner.
A typical press trip...
A collection of Toby jugs
(above and below)
The company's historical offices
Periquita – the local red variety
Moscatel – the vintages
The Portuguese authorites finally
catch up with Fabien Lainé...
wine torture .... "yes I'll confess!"
The stunning rich and complex 1911 Moscatel
– what a treat!
Naturally the 1911 deserves a hearing...
LA also agrees ...
Jim's looks a tad puzzled...
Patrick has some doubts .....
