Big, Bold and Ageworthy

A beautiful sweet fortified wine category that takes us to the banks of the Douro in Portugal. The key black grape varieties used in these beautiful vintage ports are Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional and Tinto Cão. Here at Hedonism, our shelves are replete with the most sought-after names from the key Port Houses from Graham’s, Dow’s and Warre’s to Quinta do Noval, Quinta do Vesuvio, Capela do Vesuvio - the list is long!

And yet further afield to Ukraine, with the exquisite Massandra Collection. The Massandra Winery was founded in 1894 by Tsar Nicholas II on the outskirts of Yalta, on the Crimean Peninsula, and was the official supplier of fine wines to the royal family whilst they were on vacation at their summer palace in Livadia. Many of the sweet fortified wines from the Massandra Collection are exceptionally rare and incredibly long-lived, with most only reaching maturity at around 50 to 60 years of age. The production of ‘Port’ wine was started by the original Massandra winemaker, Prince Golitzin. It was made from multiple red grape varieties grown in several different regions, fortified to between 17-19% and aged for three years in large oak casks.
