Created more than three centuries ago, in 1692, Taylor's is one of the oldest port wine trading houses dedicated exclusively to the production of Port wine and, especially, to its best styles. As an independent company whose success is inseparable from the success of the Douro region itself, Taylor’s remains committed to protecting this beautiful region by practicing viticulture that is economically and environmentally sustainable. The future of the Douro Valley and its unique environment is also the future of Port wine, one of the great classic wines in the world and an irreplaceable part of the heritage of humanity. For many, Taylor's is the most illustrious port wine producer and drinking its wines is the most sublime of experiences. In 2008, Taylor's winemaker, David Guimaraens, learned about the existence of a very old and rare port wine aged in cask, which dates from the period before the arrival of the phylloxera in the Douro, a plague that destroyed most of the region's vineyards. The wine, over 150 years old, belonged to an illustrious Douro family and was kept in a warehouse in the village of Prezegueda, in the Corgo valley. Wine, a true relic, had been passed down from one generation to the next and all attempts to convince the family to sell it had been unsuccessful.
