A long hot summer was broken by a few heavy showers at the end of August and September. Taylor’s started picking a week later than elsewhere in the valley and was rewarded with a perfectly ripe crop.
Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman celebrated its tercentenary with, among other events, a major vintage port tasting at the London headquarters of Coutts Bank, a company also founded in 1692.
