The family name "Burmester" comes from the German word "Burgmeester" (Burgemeester) - since the family came from the small town of Moelln in northern Germany. In 1730 Henry Burmester and John Nash founded a grain trade in London under the name Burmester & Nash. In 1750, the company moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and began shipping Port to the British Isles and the rest of Europe. The company was very active in London. The commercial and financial activities of the Burmester family were highly appreciated in London. The most famous street in the Wimbledon district is the 'Burmester Road'.

A vintage port means that the grapes come from 1 single year. The majority of ports are blended (so various volumes), but if a year is really nice then the winemaker chooses to make it in a vintage version as well. The grapes for this port come from rocky soils with granite layers at an altitude of 600 meters. The grapes are picked by hand at the right time and then stalked. After fermentation, brandy is added and this fortified wine ages in wooden barrels. The 2007 volume has a deep color with purple tint. Delicate in the nose with plenty of red fruit, black currant and a subtle aroma of raisins. The presence of fruit is further enhanced in the mouth. Fresh and exuberant with elegant tannins, complex and expressive, long finish.

Tastes perfect with rich chocolate desserts and blue or hard cheeses. But also delicious to enjoy or with a nice cigar.
