About the producer
Vintage Port runs like a continuous thread through most of Fonseca’s history. Since the emergence of Vintage Port as
a great classic wine in the first half of the 19th century, Fonseca has been one of its most admired and consistent
producers. The release of the legendary 1840, the first Vintage Port sold under the Fonseca name, marked the start
of a steady stream of magnificent vintages which continues to this day. It has included such icons as the Fonseca
1868 and the extraordinary 1927, 1948, 1977 and 1994, all four of them 100-point wines.
As Robert Parker wrote in The Wine Buyer’s Guide, ‘Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most
exotic and most complex port. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports.’
James Suckling, in his authoritative book on Vintage Port, put it as follows: ‘The vintage Ports of Fonseca are
perhaps the most consistently great of them all. Not only do they have a striking fleshiness and powerful richness
when young, but they retain that youthfulness for decades.’
Four families have shaped the company’s destiny since its foundation in 1815. The story begins with the Fonsecas
and Monteiros, the original founders of the business. Then came the Guimaraens family who led the firm for over a
century and first established its reputation as a ‘first growth’ Vintage Port house. And finally the Yeatmans and their
descendants who steered the company successfully through the second half of the 20th century and into the new

While for the collector or connoisseur, Fonseca may be synonymous with Vintage Port, to many wine lovers around
the world it is best known as the producer of Bin No.27, one of the most popular Ports ever made.
Over the years, Fonseca’s determination to preserve and refine its distinctive house style has drawn it ever closer to
the vineyard. The last three decades of the 20th century saw it invest in vineyard ownership and take a leading role
in vineyard renovation in the Douro Valley. Fonseca’s three estates, Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo António, with their
distinctive terroirs, have a key role in defining the unmistakable character of the firm’s wines. Fonseca also became a
pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture, helping to conserve the unique ecosystem and landscape of the valley
for future generations.

Fonseca takes pride in its past and looks forward to the future with confidence. Wine drinkers increasingly seek
wines of authenticity and character with a genuine story to tell and made by creative winemakers who understand
their terroir and respect the environment.

The wine critic James Suckling, author of the most comprehensive book on Vintage Port written to date, once
described Fonseca as ‘the Bentley’ of Vintage Port, meaning the producer of wines for the connoisseur and
enthusiast. Like the famous luxury cars, Fonseca Vintage Ports are thoroughbreds, the result of craftsmanship and
skill, but also of passion and creativity. As it has since the mid-19th century, Fonseca continues to be defined by its
position as one of a very small handful of top Vintage Port houses, a producer of wines by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.

Wine Spectator review
Score: 90
Very expressive, with generous plum, blueberry and açaí berry flavors bursting forth. Shows a polished structure,
with a nice jolt of black licorice on the finish. Tasty. Drink now. 23,000 cases imported.
