Earlier this week Johnny Symington and Joaquim Augusto Cândido da Silva of Portfolio Vinhos (our Portuguese distribution subsidiary) were in Lisbon to launch the Graham’s 1952 Single Harvest Tawny which has been specially bottled this year to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
At the press launch Martim Cabral, News Editor of SIC Noticias, interviewed Johnny Symington about this special Port and the commemoration of the Queen’s Jubilee. Watch the 20:00 Jornal da Noite (Evening News) show on SIC this weekend to learn more about this extraordinary wine, the story behind it, and the commemoration of the Queen’s Jubilee.
In the evening, Johnny and Joaquim hosted a dinner for our top clients and distributors in Lisbon and southern Portugal at the elegant Restaurant Eleven. Set in the gardens in the Park Eduardo VII overlooking Lisbon and the Tagus River, Chef Joaquim Koerper’s Restaurant Eleven holds First Place among top Portuguese restaurants as rated by Revista Wine. Once again, the group enjoyed the event, the Graham’s 1952 Single Harvest Tawny Port, and learning more of the story behind this outstanding wine.
A limited quantity of the 1952 Single Harvest Tawny is available from select retailers in Portugal. If you need help locating this Port, please contact us through the comments below, or directly at blogadmin at grahams-port dot com (use the usual symbols, we just spell it out here to avoid spam).
