Portlyman was a fitting nicknamed and play on words relating to both my love of port (and wines of course) which I acquired while working at Portman Vintners and my less that svelte stature!

This blog is focussed on wines and wineries of all styles, still and sparkling, fortified or not … but … I’ll probably cross over to cover a few restaurants and points of interest to be found in and around wine producing regions or elsewhere if I see a vino connection!

I hope you enjoy the site and welcome feedback and participation …
