In much of the world, old vines are thorn out and replaced with new ones. But not in the Douro valley. There, old vines are nurtured and treasured. Their grapes are few in number and small in size, but they make sublime wines.
We raise this glass to wish you all health and longevity. And to remind us of what we can learn from the old vineyards that make this port. We can produce a lot when we’re young, but we need to age before we can make something precious. Cheers!

We hope to visit Porto and the Douro River valley this fall. Looking forward to a glass of port, or two.
It is a beautiful trip, made even better by a great glass of port after dinner.
