Vintage Report

Port wine Vinrage Report: Henderson considers the wine from this year to be “very bad, Tawny” but, according to the Annual Company Judgement, it was of reasonable quality. Year of large production, with some exceptional wines. In 1809, during the French invasions, during dinner with Wellington in Torres Vedras, G. Sandeman referred to this wine as being “the finest of them all”. One of the guests, General Calvert, asked Sandeman to send to him in England two barrels of that wine, one of them to offer to the Duque of York, Commander-in-Chief of the British Army. Since then, the Sandeman 1797 wine became known as the “Duke of York Port”.
