1959 Port Vintage Report

The 1959 port wine vintage was a poor one. There were no declarations for vintage port and only a few single harvest / colheitas were made. Our recommendation for a 60th gift would be to select a "60 years of port" gift which comprises two bottles whose years add up to 60!.
