Graham’s, Dow’s and Warre’s Vintage Ports back to 1970 – and more – Friday 1st December

If there’s a time of year when we’re all bound – almost obliged – to turn to Port, it’s surely December. But which Port should it be, and why? What makes a 40-year-old different to a vintage port of a similar age? And is a vintage port automatically superior to a Single Harvest Tawny from the same year?

We’re delighted to welcome Anthony Symington, fifth generation of the eponymous family business, to answer all these questions and more, as he guides us through a tasting designed to showcase the different styles of ageing in port, along with several prodigiously aged bottlings from Graham’s, Warre’s and Dow’s.

Of Scottish, English and Portuguese descent, the Symingtons have been producing Port since 1882, in the process establishing a deep commitment to the region’s land and people. Today, they manage the Graham’s, Cockburn’s, Dow’s and Warre’s Port houses as well as Quinta do Vesuvio and their three other Douro wine brands and, as of 2017, Quinta da Fonte Souto in the Alto Alentejo.

Join us on Friday 1st December for a festive evening of education and entertainment (and yes, there will be cheese).
