This Port wine is one of the oldest available in the world. The wine was produced in 1858 and it was bottled by Domingos Ayres de Mattos (1829-1890) and kept in the cellar of his residence, “Casa de Cima”. Domingos’ son Antonio Ayres de Mattos (1879-1956), father of the current shareholders of the family owned business “Coimbra de Mattos, Lda.”, was aware of the wine’s exceptional quality and (possibly motivated by sentimental reasons), wanted to leave the destiny of such a ‘treasure’ to his heirs. In 1969 and again in 2013 this wine was tasted for quality control, bottle by bottle and almost the entire stock was found to be in perfect condition.
This wonderful and unique tawny (with more than a century and a half in the bottle!) is now available to anyone who by knowledge, pleasure, passion, …is a Port Wine lover and enthusiastic for supreme quality.
