Sobre Burmester Tawny Port

Burmester Tawny Port is a port aged in oak casks and blended for four years. It’s made in the Douro region, in the north-east of Portugal.

The Douro region in particular (recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2021) owes its fame to a long tradition. The story begins in the 17th century when Colbert (Louis XIV's Minister of Economy, known for his protectionist measures), restricted trade with England. In response, King Charles II banned the importation of French goods, which meant the English had to find other ways to supply their cellars. This is how Portuguese merchants and winemakers saw a great business opportunity.

It was the beginning of a tradition which a century later would be joined by the Burmester winery which soon presented the Burmester Tawny Port to the world. This wine comes from the vineyards of Quinta do Arnozelo, planted on terraces that go from 300 meters above sea level to the banks of the Douro River, with cold winters and very hot summers. This, together with other details, such as manual harvesting, gentle pressing, ageing in oak barrels and blending different vintages, make Burmester Tawny Port a wine that should be known about. 

According to the French winegrower J.Kressman, "there’s more history than geography in a bottle of wine". It’s very likely that wherever a good glass of Burmester Tawny Port glass is poured, you won't need a history book.
