As owners and makers of some of the most admired Port brands, and with a family history in the Port trade going back 13 generations, the Symington family have gathered an extraordinary collection of source material and knowledge about Port. In this archive, we share with you the records that were kept each year by the viticulturalists and winemakers who were working in both the Douro and Vila Nova de Gaia. For individual wines we include both the wine maker’s own tasting notes from the time of release and additional notes accumulated over the years, drawn from the top wine critics as well as our own in-house tastings.
A gold mine for Vintage Port lovers, you can now learn more about the wines you have or wish to acquire and the harvest conditions in which they were made. The tasting notes, gathered together from many sources over the lifetime of the wines, provide a unique opportunity to understand how Vintage Port ages and flavours mature over an extended period of time.
