Smith Woodhouse Port
Smith Woodhouse consistently steals the show when it comes to Vintage Ports - they are eagerly sought out by true Port lovers but often are unheralded when amongst the trade's biggest names - that is until the tasting begins.
Smith Woodhouse is a specialist producer of premium quality Ports made primarily from grapes grown in the vineyards of Quinta da Madalena, a small but very good 7 hectare property in the heart of Rio Torto Valley, long recognised as one of the best areas of the Douro. As a specialist producer, quality takes priority above all else.
Only the best fruit is used, picked by hand and transported in small boxes to ensure the best possible condition of the grapes coming into the winery.
Rigorous selection standards and the low-yielding old vines of the Madalena vineyard combine to ensure that the quantity of Port bottled each year is very limited but of uncompromising quality.
