Storing Vintage Port

February 4, 2013
Question by: Elizabeth, Great Britain


How long should I store Fonseca 1963?


Hi Elizabeth, The 1963 Vintage was one of the greatest of the 20th century, and well-cellared wines are drinking beautifully now, but can have more life ahead of them.  The crucial factor is how the wine has been stored - if it is and has been kept in dark, consistently cool conditions, then you can plan to enjoy your wine whenever you next have an occasion to share this wine with family and friends.  If the conditions have been less than ideal, then you may want to open it sooner rather than later.  Learn more about good cellar conditions in our article about Storing Vintage Port, and you may also want to look at our articles about Decanting Vintage Port and Serving Port
