In 2015 Fonseca commemorated the bicentenary of Fonseca and also of the final dramatic engagement of the Napoleonic Wars, the Battle of Waterloo. By the time Fonseca began trading on 8th April, 1815, Napoloean's forces has been driven from the Iberian Peninsula. On 18th June, 1815, the Wars finally ended with the defeat at Waterloo of Napoleon's Grande Armee by the Prussian army and Anglo-Dutch forces led by the Duke of Wellington.

 

This robust full-bodied Reserve Port celebrates the 200th anniversary of the victory of the House of Fonseca.

Country Of Origin: Portugal

Since the emergence of vintage port as a great classic wine in the first half of the 19th century, Fonseca has been one of its most admired and consistent producers. The release of the legendary 1840, the first vintage port to be sold under the Fonseca name, marked the start of a steady stream of magnificent vintages which continue to this day.

 

Over the years, Fonseca's determination to preserve and refine its distinctive house style has drawn it ever closer to the vineyard. The last three decades of the 20th century saw it invest in vineyard ownership and take a leading role in vineyard renovation in the Douro Valley. Fonseca's three estates, Panascal, Cruzeiro and Santo Antonio, with their distinctive terroirs, have a key role in defining the unmistakeable character of the firm's wines. Fonseca also became a pioneer of organic and sustainable viticulture, helping to conserve the unique ecosystem and landscape of the valley for future generations.
