Harmonious and balanced

Taylor’s is one of the most highly respected producers of aged tawny Port wines. Since its foundation in 1692 by Job Bearsley, Taylor’s has always been committed to the highest quality, combining the respect for its heritage with a pioneering spirit. Peter Bearsley, Job’s son, was the first member of the English wine trade to make the daunting journey to the inhospitable Douro Valley himself in the 1720’s. Peter went a step further than his contemporaries looking further inland to the wild and rocky hills of the Douro Valley; other merchants bought the wines of the Douro through intermediaries. In 1744, Bartholomew Bearsley, Job’s grandson, became the first British wine shipper to buy a property in the Douro. It was a bold move, allowing him to build relationships with the farmers and secure the first pick of their wines.
