Port wine from tradition and innovation
With a history of well over 300 years, Taylor's is one of the oldest independent port wine houses. It was founded by the English merchant Job Bearsley, who came to Porto at the end of the 17th century to buy wine. It is also the origin of the mark 4XX, which is actually a wool seal, but still represents the Taylor's company emblem and can be found on every bottle. His descendants continued the trade and specialized more and more in port wines and established themselves as one of the most appreciated port wine houses worldwide.
It is best known for its extremely durable, award-winning vintage ports (100 Parker points for 1992 and 1994 alone!) and its decades of mature tawnying. Taylor's is also known as a pioneer and inventor of new port styles such as Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), the dry White Port (Chip Dry) or Single Quinta Vintage Port (Quinta de Vargellas).
