Everyone knows Port wine, but how many people have tasted a good glass of Port wine? It was with this question in mind that we went to Taylor’s, one of the oldest Port wine brands, with 325 years of experience. The brand new kiosk, located next to the chef’s wing in Time Out Market, wants to show all Portuguese and foreigners visiting the market that there is a huge variety of Port wines, each with its own characteristics. From there they brought in their luggage some rare wines, drier or fruity Ports, newer or older, which can be consumed by the glass, but also integrated into wine tasting. And despite its 325 years old, Taylor’s has been able to renew itself: proving it are two cocktails to try at the kiosk: a tonic port and a pink tonic (7 €).
Taylor’s ‘out-of-doors’ space, one of Porto’s oldest and most prestigious wine houses, is one of the main news of the year at Time Out Market Lisboa. The Taylor’s Port Wine Experience kiosk is the only one entirely dedicated to Port wine on the market. It presents a wide representation of the range of the brand and its mission is to show the Portuguese and foreigners who visit the market the huge variety of Porto wines, leading them to taste, appreciate and rediscover this national icon.
To counteract the potential complexity of Port wine, an approach was taken to facilitate the decoding of the products, arranged in small individual storefronts in the shape of wooden boxes whose interiors refer to the colors associated with the different wines. Taylor’s communication is simple and straightforward, classifying each wine according to its key characteristics: Fresh and Vivacious (Chip Dry), Fruity and Full (Select and LBV), Rich and Velvety (Tawnies 10, 20, 30 and 40 years ) and Powerful, Elegant and Refined (Vintage 2007 and Vargellas 2008), thus facilitating the interpretation and choice of visitors.
With Christmas on the doorstep, this experience is an invitation to immerse yourself in the universe of Port wine that may inspire you to choose a special wine for the consoada, or to buy a different gift from one of the great classic wines. of the world.
