Founded in 1981 by John Graham and his wife Caroline Churchill, Churchill?s port is an independent, family-owned Port Wine House -- the first independent port wine house established in more than fifty years. Churchill?s is the only port wine producer who begins with wines produced only from grapes grown in Grade A vineyards. And according to Robert Parker, Jr., writing in The Wine Advocate, ?Churchill has established an impeccable reputation for superb quality.? Produced like a vintage port -- wine of a single year, aged for 1 year in the barrel then immediately bottled. In the words of Robert M. Parker of The Wine Advocate, ?A sensational single-vineyard Port. Extremely powerful, with awesome concentration, great length and presence on the palate spectacularly deep Port.?
