WINE AVAILABLE

Join us for an exclusive tasting with David Guimaraens, the renowned winemaker of Taylor’s and Fonseca, as he takes us through a selection of superb Ports.

David has a number of extraordinary wines to his credit and is regarded as one of the most gifted wine makers in the Port industry. As Technical Director and head wine maker of The Fladgate Partnership, he leads the team responsible for wine making in the group’s wineries and on the Taylor and Fonseca estates.

David was born in 1965, in Oporto, Portugal and represents the sixth generation of Guimaraens in the Port business. After completing his schooling, David spent time gaining hands-on experience in Australia, California and Oregon before undertaking formal education in œnology at Roseworthy College, South Australia.  After graduating he remained in Australia to gain additional experience before returning to Portugal in 1990 to join the Taylor and Fonseca wine making teams.

Since 1991 David has played a leading role in the production of the group’s wines and in the development of its wineries and vineyards. Together with António Magalhães, one of the Douro’s most respected viticulturists and a world authority on mountain viticulture, he has created an award winning sustainable vineyard model for environmentally responsible viticulture in the Douro Valley.
