Symington Family Declares 2017 Vintage Port

Posted 9 April 2019

by Dia Grigoriou


The Symington
family just announced 2017 as a classic Vintage Port year, making this their first
ever 'back-to-back' general declaration since Andrew James Symington arrived in
Porto in 1882!

This declaration -
only the sixth declaration of the 21st century comes in contrast with the
tradition of rarely declaring a vintage year 'back-to-back’. So far, the
port trade has held back declaring two consecutive vintages as we can see
from the 2015 vintage port which, although of very high quality, was not
declared in anticipation of the widely declared 2016.
