Port Cálem 1950
We love vintage Port, not quite as much as vintage whisky but it does come close.
Founded in 1859, by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem was by this time dedicated only to wine exports to Brazil in exchange of exotic woods and by means of its own fleet. Porto Cálem was kept in the family for four generations, always developing business around quality
Today, and since 1998, Porto Cálem is part of Sogevinus SGPS, S.A.
Sogevinus Group handles a large number of companies which address their activity to the production and trade of Port and D.O.C. Douro Wines.
Porto Cálem product range has granted along its history an outstanding number of prizes and awards, especially on the Premium Vintages, Late Bottled Vintages and Aged Tawny.
The first Vintage Port ever produced by Porto Cálem was the Vintage Port 1870 and the initial awards include Medals from Bordeaux, Marseille and Brussels 1897 wine competitions.
From then on, Porto Cálem Wines have won important awards in the most important international wine competitions from Portugal, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Slovene, USA and Japan.
