A landmark vintage and reference for many who have been lucky enough to drink the Taylor Fladgate 1963 Vintage Port. It is surprisingly more youthful in colour than the 1960.
In 1963, a cold Winter was followed by a wet Spring. Christmas Day temperature of -4ºC was one of the lowest for many years. Apart from two periods of hot weather in July and August, the Summer was cool. The harvest started on 7th October with perfect weather, hot days and cool nights.
