This beautiful old Tawny Port ages in the family business's cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia in big oak casks. Messias Colheita 1966 gets its wooden sweetness, refined aromas and taste variety out of the wood, without losing its freshness.

That's what the history of port wines taste like, if you have ever asked yourself.

Messias Colheita 1966 is a great fortified wine from Portugal, and serves as a perfect ice breaker as an aperitive before dinner with your friends, as well as a companion for dessert.
