1980 Vintage Wines and Vintage Ports make an outstanding gift for a 40th Birthday or Anniversary. Our wine buyer recommends the perfectly preserved 1980 Burmester Vintage Port , which has been stored in the Burmester cellars in Porto since original bottling. The 1980 is exceptional and represents great value. There are also Colheita or single harvest ports from this year (e.g. Messias 1980) to make a broader selection.
The 1980 wine vintage was an excellent year for Vintage Port. Superb growing conditions and an abundant harvest meant that 1980 was generally declared by the shippers as a classic vintage. It was a disappointing year for Bordeaux and Italian wines and was one of the very few cool years. . They will remain so for many years to come. A great selection of 1980 Barolo's inexpensive Chianti's and outstanding 1980 Madeiras completes a stunning line up for a 40th Birthday.
