Tawny Ports, long a less popular sibling of their ruby cousins, are gaining new attention. Seeing potential in the category, top Port houses are producing high-quality, long-aged tawnies and marketing them to American and U.K. consumers.
Do people still collect Vintage Port? Vintage Port has traditionally been found in the cellars of wine collectors alongside the bottles and cases of Bordeaux, Burgundy, Barolo, Tuscans and Napa Cabernet. Long-time collectors are only now finishing their last bottles of 1963 and starting to pull the corks on their 1977 Vintage Ports.
