2004 Vintage Port Availability

November 3, 2011
Question by: James, Wetherby, UK


When is Warre's Quinta da Cavadinha 2004 going to be released for sale?  It is my son's birth year and I am looking to buy a vintage port from this year.  Do I wait until you release this or buy another quinta?


Hi James, The 2004 Vintage ports that were released en primeur in 2006 include Quinta do Vesuvio, Quinta de Roriz, and Dow's Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira.  Specialist wine merchants should be able to locate these Vintage Ports for you, if you wish.  For Warre's Quinta da Cavadinha, Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos and Dow's Quinta do Bomfim, you will have to wait.  Typically, for these quintas, we age the bottles in our own cellars here in Gaia until around ten years after harvest, or when we think they are ready to drink - so, they will not be released until around 2014.  Mark your calendar and watch The Vintage Port Site for news of the releases.
