Port Group Buy: St. Jorge Winery Vineyard Walk – May 12

Vern Vierra at St. Jorge Winery in Lodi has committed to hosting a port group buy, and he is wanting a quantity from the group by mid-May. He is giving us first chance to purchase before putting the fruit on the market.

Vern and Jenice are offering to host a vineyard walk this coming Saturday, May 12th at 9:00 am. Address is 22769 Bender Rd. Acampo, CA. 95220.  The walk includes touring the vineyard while Vern discusses the vines and history of Portuguese grapes, and then it’s on to tasting each individual port variety, paired with cheese.

Here is a link to a recent piece from the Stockton Record about St. Jorge Winery’s ports. 

The following grapes and prices are what Vern uses in his Portuguese port.

Tinta Cao – .60 per pound

Touriga National – .60 per pound

Tinta Roriz – .60 per pound

Souzao – .80 per pound only 1500 lbs available

Trincaderia – .60 per pound

You will also have the opportunity to taste and purchase St. Jorge’s white port,
Mideira, made with Verdelho. This variety is also available for purchase.

Please let Thad Rodgers know if you plan on attending asap so that the winery can plan for the size of the group. Thad’s contact: 916 715-3688 and thadrodgers1@gmail.com.
