Taylor's is now into its fourth century: one of the very oldest of Port companies. It is the last totally independent company of the original British Port houses - and is still family owned and managed. For more than 300 years Taylor's name has been synonymous with consistent excellence in Port. The stature of its Ports is acknowledged by experts everywhere - and by the international wine auctions which regularly price Taylor's vintage Port ten to fifteen per cent above its rivals.
Vines have grown on the steep and rocky slopes of the Douro valley since Roman times. The soil is schist, a hard rock which often has to be broken up using dynamite when planting. Vines are one of the few plants to ssurvive here, and have to put roots down as much as 25 feet in order to find water. Summers can be hot, and winters very cold, but the Douro's unique and austere beauty means that it is now a World Heritage Site.
