Which Port Did Johnny Symington Enjoy This Christmas?

Just before Christmas our Vintage Port Site blogger asked the Symingtons and colleagues around the office what Ports they would be enjoying with their holiday feasts.

We only heard from Johnny Symington the morning after Christmas, but wanted to share his story with you:

Sorry not to reply earlier, I only decided on Christmas eve.

Having had a Pre launch taster of the Graham’s 1952 at last years Christmas lunch (before it was the Graham’s 1952 Diamond Jubilee Port and before it was approved by the palace and served at the Sovereign Heads Lunch at Windsor Castle). I decided on Christmas Eve this year that I would finish the Diamond Jubilee year with the same wine and celebrate and reflect on the outstanding PR success  that this wine has had for Graham’s.

So as I sipped and reflected at our Christmas Dinner this year the overwhelming thought was “no wonder it was such a success, the wine is so delicious and over delivers in every respect”.

As we go into 2013 this wine becomes a collectors’ item of great rarity and significance.

You can read more about which Ports we enjoyed during our holiday festivities on The Vintage Port Site blog.

How about you? What Ports have you enjoyed this holiday season, or are looking forward to in the coming week?  We would love to hear from you!

  1. Dear Cynthia

    Nice to see some hype around the G. 52 – since we bought a bottle from The Danish agent The Wine Company, Steen Rasmussen and as a bonus got the elaborated wooden box. Only one fault that the box don´t have a handle – since it would be nice to use it for my six IVP glasses tasting kit:0)
    Happy New Vintage Year from Copenhagen

    1. Hi Robert, Delighted to hear you were able to source some of the 1952 in Denmark! Have a wonderful New Year, and we hope it will bring you to visit us in Porto.
