1963 Vintage Ports

Question by: Andrew, Selborne, GB


Is 1963 vintage port too old?


Hi Andrew,  Not at all!  Vintage Ports from 1963 were recognised from the start as monumental Ports, and they have proven worthy of our confidence, ageing very well indeed.  They are drinking well now, and have the potential to age further.  The key, as with any Vintage Port, is to look for wines from top producers that have been well cellared.  You can read the 1963 Vintage Report on the Knowledge Base on this site, and follow the links at the top of that page to see reviews for each wine individually.  All of our brands declared in 1963, as did nearly all Port produers.
