#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 

 Maturing Moscatel

 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...
André agrees 

LA also agrees ...
  Jim's looks a tad puzzled...

 Patrick has some doubts .....
