“Ultimately, it comes down to the simple, glaring fact that one never tires of Taylor’s.” - Serena Sutcliffe, Sotheby's
For many connoisseurs of fine port wine, Taylor’s represents the pinnacle of the genre. Taylor’s Port was founded well over three centuries ago, back in 1692.
After generations of development and refinement, Taylor’s is now seen as the benchmark for Vintage Port. Remarkable for their poise and elegance and for their subtle strength and longevity, Taylor’s Vintage Ports are blended from only the finest produce from the firm’s own ‘quintas’ or estates; these being Terra Feita, Junco and Vargellas. Each of these famous vineyards occupies a location with its own distinctive characteristics. They are the very foundation of the company’s success.
Taylor’s is held in the highest esteem as a producer of wood aged ports. The company maintains one of the largest reserves of rare cask-aged wines, from which its distinguished aged tawny Ports are drawn. Taylor’s Port is also renowned as the originator of Late Bottled Vintage, a style of port which the firm pioneered and of which it remains the leading producer.
One of the most appealing aspects of Taylor’s Port is that is still very much a family firm. It is wholly independent with several family members playing a significant role. This long and proud tradition has brought a valuable sense of continuity and clarity of purpose; essential attributes of all the great wine houses. This familial longevity has also enabled the knowledge and skills required in port production to be constantly refined. The experience of one generation is forever passed on to the next.
The company is based in Oporto and the Douro Valley. From the planting of the vineyard and the cultivation of the grapes to the making, ageing, blending and bottling of the wines, immaculate care and attention to detail are applied. The family’s commitment to the future of Port is demonstrated in its single minded dedication to the highest standards in Port production. Taylor’s constantly invest in all aspects of the company’s and are dedicated to preserving the unique environment of the Douro Valley through the maintenance and promotion of responsible and sustainable viniculture.
