A HOUSE OF “FAMILIES”
The philosophy of this family business is based on the principle of producing quality wines, practicing an economic and environmentally sustainable viticulture, that protects the Douro Valley and its environment – a unique heritage, which is also the future of the port wine, one of the great classic wines.
A long family tradition, the ability to innovate and produce best Port wines each year, made many to consider Taylor’s most illustrious production house of port – drinking their wine becomes a unique and sublime experience.
One of the most significant innovations originated in seeking to produce a port wine of a single year, which had been filtered and could be drunk without being decanted. The result was Taylor’s Late Bottled Vintage 1965, which was launched on the British market in 1970.
It was also the time (in 1973) when taking advantage of the new rules introduced by the Instituto do Vinho do Porto (IVP), which allowed the producers to indicate on labels the age of Port Tawny Wine aged, were released by Taylor’s Port wines Tawny 10, 20, 30 and 40 – unique quality, appreciated worldwide wines.
The spirit of innovation, investment in vineyards of high quality and renewal of vineyards using newer methods of vertical planting allow Taylor’s to keep a firm commitment to produce and sell the best Porto wine, keeping its identity and tradition, benefiting to one of the most important and respectable trade groups port wine quality – The Fladgate Partnership.
