    Description

    For over 200 years, Dow has been associated with producing fine Port from the upper Douro. Unlike most other Port houses, Dow’s story starts with a Portuguese man coming to the British Isles (the reverse story of most). Bruno da Silva started shipping wines from his home to country to Britain and thus the story starts. Today Dow is noted for producing very fine but well priced Port.

    This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977.The 1977, still a baby, is fabulously scented, very rich and concentrated, and has a potential longevity of at least another 30-50 years.
