Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal. The brothers, who already came from a successful entrepreneurial family, dedicated themselves to producing a line of fine vintage Ports. In 1890, they became one of the first Port quintas (estates) to source fruit from the upper Douro Valley and established the property Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of the grapes from this vineyard is a major contribution to the finesse of their Ports. In that same year, the brothers opened the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia, to store and showcase the wines. Vintages of Graham’s Port became famous for their structure and elegance, particularly 1909, 1912, 1924, 1927 and especially 1948, a wine Jancis Robinson said was among the finest she’d ever tasted. In 1970, Graham’s was sold to the Symington family, who themselves had a legacy of quality Port production dating back centuries. They have upheld the traditions begun by the Graham Read more »

  • Graham Porto Late Bottled Vintage 2000


    Haven't actually tried the 2000, I tried the 2001 (but it's not listed). Sounds very similar. A very rich dark wine, and very smooth. Thouroughly enjoyed this one. Read More

  • Graham's Vintage Port Port Port Port Portugal Douro 2003


    Inky purple. The aroma is big, sweet and lots of stewed fruit. The palate is very big, with tannins gripping a little too firmly and lots of stalky herbs, and black pepper. Read More

  • Grahams Dq Vintage Port 1983


    This is the second Port I ever purchased and I always have a soft sport for it. At 23 this is heading towards a mid-life crisis for collectors: drink or hold? If you have a case, then I suggest both. Right now it shows off a precocious personality, ultimately harmonious and enjoyable at the moment. Yet the tannins are still quite ripe today and ...

  • Grahams Vintage Port Rmp 93 Premier 1977


    The nose shows some spicy elements and an herbal essence that add intricacy to the fresh raspberry aroma that showed no outward sign of spirit. Finally! I have never been a fan of this VP and it has always been a thorn in my side, even when put in front of me in a handful of "blind" tests ("let's fool Roy"). However, this particular bottle made ...

  • Graham's Vintage Port 1955


    Gentle. Jammy, squashed strawberries and a little toffee. Beautifully balanced nose. The palate is wonderful, a little alcohol initially moves onto a peppery fruity palate. After a few hours, its got caramel, warm sugar... stunning, and the best port I have tasted to date. Read More

  • Graham Porto Tico Dry NV


    Austere, and alive!Light nose with a slight nuttiness and some pear? Almost steely with an underlying softness. Very dry in the mouth with an austerity and light bite on the finish. Fresh mosit nut quality with some light fruit. A nice apretif though not for large amounts of consumption. C5+A11+T14+O7=87 [87] Read More

  • Graham Porto 20-Year Tawny NV


    Maple, nut brown color, beautiful! Rich wood, and raisen nose with soft toffee carmel notes. Med weight in the mouth with a rich sweetness that drys a bit on the finish followed by an alcohol burn that seems well integrated. Rich wood flavors of oak and a bisquit note that leads me to believe it was covered with carmel. Light fruit through out t... Read More
