Founded in 1798 over two centuries ago, and always family-owned, Dow’s is arguably one of the great Port houses, known for their structure and slightly dry style. Its Vintage Ports have been landmark wines in virtually every great year, consistently setting the standard amongst all Port houses. Vintage Ports such as the remarkable Dow 1896, 1945, 1963, 1970, 1980, 1994, 2007 and the 2011 (#1 Wine in the World Wine Spectator Top 2014) are all legends in the history of this great wine. These Ports are still magnificent today, even when 50 or over 100 years old. Few wines can claim this quality and this pedigree.
