How is vintage port made?


Vintage port is the product of an exceptional year vintage ports are not declared every year by any means, and any decision to do so by a shipper must be ratified by the Instituto do Vinho do Porto.  Vintage port is bottled after just two years in casks and continues to mature slowly in the bottle for years - this is the alchemy that creates this splendid port wine. Vintage Port is very full and fruity with high tannin levels when young and it will generally not reach its peak for 15 to 20 years.

Drinking vintage port


Vintage port will throw a sediment in the bottle so it will require decanting first it also won't last long when opened, one to two days, so plan on enjoying vintage port quickly with friends!

Food & vintage port


This is the king of after dinner wines, so it has to be strong cheese or dark chocolate desserts to go with vintage port.  It is also good company for strong coffee and the odd cigar.
