Competitions and offers
Win a £240 annual membership of Churchill’s new port.club
THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED. Although I can’t imagine Christmas without port it seems crazy to deny ourselves the pleasure of drinking it at other times of year, doesn’t it? Well the clever people at Churchill’s have come up with the idea of an online port club which delivers a quarterly port pack of three of Churchill’s award-winning ports.
Churchill’s is the youngest and smallest of the big-name port houses, fusing a drier style of port with minimal intervention viticulture and winemaking. All Churchill’s ports are foot-trodden, using only Grade-A grapes and natural yeast for extended fermentation. This allows for the purest expression of fruit – with more grape sugar converted to alcohol and less brandy required in fortification. The result is their signature fresh style.
The annual membership of the Port.Club they’re offering as a prize includes a quarterly delivery of a three-bottle Port Packs with one everyday port, one special occasion port, and one unique Club Port selected and blended by Churchill’s founder and head winemaker Johnny Graham exclusively for club members. The three ports in the first pack will be: Churchill’s Reserve Port, Churchill’s 20 Year Old Tawny Port and a club exclusive release of Churchill’s Quinta da Gricha 2009 single quinta Vintage Port. All are ready to drink now.
Each shipment also comes with materials explaining what’s in the pack and an invitation to a virtual tasting with Johnny. In addition, members will have access to exclusive port experiences both online and in-person. From VIP access to Churchill’s intimate 4-bedroom Vineyard House in the Douro Valley to bespoke programs at Churchill’s award-winning Lodge in bustling Porto, Port.Club serves as a portal to the world of port for members and their friends.
Annual membership to the Churchill’s port club costs £240 and quarterly membership is priced at £70. Anyone purchasing an annual membership by January 15th 2021 can gift an additional pack worth £70 (which needs to be ordered by 20th December to ensure delivery before Christmas). You can find full details on their website port.club
