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.

3/5

The Messias Colheita 2005 had a very deep color. I drank it several day after I first opened it and, even though the days, it tasted good.
It would have been better with meat.
This wine was recommended by a friends of us.
I always ask for it when I go to the restaurant.
A classic.

Caves Messias
Caves Messias is a historic family owned producer renowned for their colheita and vintage ports. Founded in 1926 by Messias Baptista, the company has remained a family owned business up tol the present day. The most famous estate is Quinta do Cachão which has its slopes adjacent to the River Douro, in the subregion Cima Corgo. The vineyard was first planted in 1845 by the Baron Pebble sendomais and later acquired by family Afonso Cabral, who in turn sold it to Messiah family in 1956. In order to increase production capacity, Messias acquired another adjoining property, Quinta do Rei, then belonging Gonzales Byass.
