About Fonseca

The Past, Today and Tomorrow

The first chapter of this book tells the story of the families which have shaped the company’s destiny since its foundation in 1815.

The story begins with the Fonsecas and Monteiros, the original founders of the business, followed by the Guimaraens family who led the firm for over a century and first established its reputation as a 'first growth' Vintage Port house and finally the Yeatmans and their descendants who steered the company successfully through the second half of the 20th century and into the new millennium.

While for the collector or connoisseur, Fonseca may be synonymous with Vintage Port, to many wine lovers around the world it is best known as the producer of Bin No.27.  This celebrated reserve blend draws on the heritage of the great Fonseca Vintages and shares their seductive fruit quality, a hallmark of the Fonseca style.  The book describes how Bin No.27 grew into one of the most popular Ports ever made.
