In this masterclass Paul Symington and his cousin Johnny, will present a line-up of rare vintage Ports, including Dow’s 1966, Graham’s 1963 and Warre’s 1960, of which there are only a few cases left. The tasting will conclude with the exceptionally rare Graham’s 1955. A tasting on this scale is unlikely ever to be repeated due to the scarcity of the wines.
