Change in Bottle Design

May 24, 2012
Question by: Dorsey, USA


I am sooo distressed.  When you changed the Cockburn Port bottle you added the dimple in the bottom.  I have been making a water glass set from those bottles and now I can't complete the set.  I didn't mind the bigger logo.... it still would fit in but with the dimple, they no longer can be made into glasses. :-(   Just wanted you to know that change is not appreciated.  The port was fabulous before and it didn't need a dimple in the bottle to be any better.

Buying Port in Pennsylvania

May 8, 2012
Question by: Steven, Pennsylvania, USA


I had a question regarding purchasing Port wine online.  I live in the state of Pennsylvania which does not obtain, at least in my immediate area, a vast selection of Port wines, in particular Vintage Ports.  I was curious to know your recommendations of reputable importers or websites where I could purchase Port wine.  I am always concerned that some importers or warehouses don't properly store wine, thus I would pay for a poorly stored or kept wine.
