Richard Mayson's Guide to Vintage Port is a directory supplement to his bestselling book Port and the Douro, comprising a guide to vintage port and a directory of producers and shippers. Beginning with 2015, the guide to port vintages takes each year in turn, noting relevant weather conditions, market considerations and the overall style of the wines, and highlighting particularly successful shippers. Mayson includes every `modern' port vintage back to 1960, along with more recent Single Quinta Vintage Ports (SQVPs). Each year is given a star rating from 0 to 5 stars. Fully declared vintages prior to 1960 are also described in detail, with the oldest of the tasted wines dating back to 1844. The directory of producers and shippers provides full contact details and tasting notes for more than fifty vintage port producers and shippers. The guide also includes interesting asides on bottling vintage port, serving and tasting, and passing the port, along with special features on Quinta do Noval Nacional and Vargellas Vinha Velha.
