The Port industry has announced its biggest Vintage Port declaration ever with close to 50 different wines approved, or in the process of being approved, by the Port wine institute. The 2007 Vintage Ports will be bottled in a few months, but futures are currently going on sale as each house sets its prices. They should be shipped to the wine trade in the fall.

“These are great wines and it is always difficult to compare them to previous years as we believe that each year has its own character,” said Adrian Bridge, head of the Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca and Croft houses. “For us, the wines have the noses of the 1992s and are probably in the style of the 1966.”
