This Autumn, Graham’s Port and Disappearing Dining Club will be hosting a series of supper club style dinners bringing the tastes, flavours and sounds of the Douro Valley to London. Following the success of previous ‘Little Porto’ events, the new-look dinners will be hosted at the Dartmouth Arms in North London, offering guests a four-course dining experience inspired by Port and Portuguese cuisine and accompanied by smooth jazz sounds.

Graham’s has been in the winemaking business since 1820, blending this impressive heritage with a passion for innovation that has attracted swathes of discerning young drinkers to embrace the P&T – or (White) Port and Tonic, for the uninitiated – as the newest drink of the summer.

Combined with the culinary expertise of Head Chef Fred Bolin and his crack team at Disappearing Dining Club, the two are a force to be reckoned with within London’s experimental dining scene, and ‘A Taste of Porto’ is an experience not to be missed.

Highlights from the menu include Slow Roasted Pork Belly, Prawn Carpaccio, and Apple and Port Braised Celeriac. Each dish will be expertly paired with a Portuguese wine, followed by a port tasting flight as the piece de resistance, offering diners the chance to sip their way through different varieties and vintages of Porto’s most famous export.

Latino and Portuguese jazz-inspired sounds from award-winning DJs Ricardo Paris and Jorge Montiel will set the scene, played on the Dartmouth Arms’ wonderful vinyl-only Hi-Fi sound system, helping transport guests to the vibrant streets of Porto.

WHEN: Thursdays 17th / 24th / 31st October, Thursdays 7th / 14th / 21st November (doors open 7pm)

WHERE: Dartmouth Arms, 35 York Rise, London, NW5 1SP (nearest stations Tufnell Park of Gospel Oak)

WHAT: Tickets include welcome drink, four course Port-inspired dinner, four paired glasses of Portuguese wine and a Graham’s Port tasting flight

PRICE: £40

About Graham’s

Renowned worldwide for producing outstanding Vintage Ports, Graham’s also makes a range of Aged Tawny Ports, Late Bottled Vintage, Reserve and Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Ports. Graham’s growing success in the 19th Century resulted in the acquisition of the famous Quinta dos Malvedos in the Alto Douro and in the construction of the imposing Graham’s 1890 Lodge. Overlooking the city of Porto, the Graham’s Lodge houses over 3,500 seasoned oak casks of Port, numerous large oak vats, an extensive Vintage Port cellar and Vinum – one of Porto’s premier restaurants.
