2010 Vintage Port Availability

July 6, 2012
Question by: Emily, York, England


Can you please tell me if it is still possible to purchase any of the 2010 Symington vintage and if so, if you know of a retailer near York, or indeed anywhere in England, who will sell it to me? I would like a case, ideally.  Thank you very much, in anticipation.


Hi Emily, Absolutely!  Symington have made two Vintage Ports for en-primeur offer this year:  The Quinta do Vesuvio 2010 and the Dow's Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira 2010 are still in the process of distribution, and retailers should still be taking orders for delivery later this summer or autumn. 

In England you have two good contacts: Vintage Marque is an on-line retailer that is affiliated with our UK distributor, and they can ship directly anywhere in the UK when the wines are available, alternatively, if you contact them directly they can advise you of a local wine merchant if you prefer to deal with a bricks and mortar shop.  The other choice is Berry Brothers & Rudd who run an excellent on-line shop and can ship almost anywhere in the world.  Berry Brothers & Rudd also offer the service of keeping your wines in bond in their own temperature controlled warehouse if you wish.  This could be a good choice if you do not have ideal storage conditions at home and wish to lay down the wines for some time, or if the Port is intended as a gift, the recipient will be advised that the wines have been purchased and are being held for them, in their own name, until they wish to take physical delivery.
