Port is the world's greatest fortified wine, a wine of depth, concentration and majestic structure produced in the valley of the Douro River, east of Oporto in Northern Portugal.
Port's story is one of the most unusual and romantic of any in the world of wine, and the history of Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman is in many ways the history of Port.
Taylor's is now into its fourth century: one of the very oldest of the Port companies. It is the last totally independent company of the original British Port houses-and is still family owned and managed.
It is run today from Oporto by descendants of the Yeatman and Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since the 1830s.
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.
