These bottles were bought directly from the producer when they were produced.
Due to their age, several of these bottles from the 60s and 70s were recorked in 2019.
This process was done at the Messias lodge in Gaia - therefore, we can guarantee the content to be the original Ports.
The wine was always stored in a private cellar under perfect storage conditions.
Sociedade Agrícola e Comercial dos Vinhos Messias, S. A., was established in 1926 by Messias Baptista but started shipping Vintage port only in the 1950s. Today, the descendants are in the board of directors.
Quinta do Cachão, their main quinta, is located in the Cima Corgo, the most rugged and inaccessible region in the entire Douro region. The major reason which prevented exporters from cultivating this region was the Cachão da Valeira, a huge rock which blocked the Douro River and was only demolished in 1807. Cachão was purchased in 1956 by Messias in a very run down state and in 1958 Messias purchased the neighbouring Quinta do Rey from González-Byass.
