Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges was founded in 1884 by two brothers, Francisco and Antonio Borges. In 1998, Borges became a member of the JMV group, a group of Portuguese investors. It is now owned by a coffee producer and much of the vineyards and supplies have been sold to Taylor's well-known port home. A new winemaker is now at the helm, coming from Taylor's! With the arrival of the new winemaker, the style of the port is changing from a more traditional 'tawny' style, which requires a long ripening to a richer, more 'ruby' fruit style.

The Tawny port of Borges Porto is a blend of the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão. As with all Tawny ports, the blend of wines comes from different harvest years with an average of four to five years of wood aging. Slight development in the color. This Porto Tawny is clear brown-tawny in color. The scent is reminiscent of ripe fruit and vanilla. This tawny port is velvety in taste with a nice fresh-fruity character. Nice nose with cedar wood touch. Slender, spicy taste, almost savory. Pretty dry. Stylish.

The Borges Tawny has won the silver medal at the Berliner Wine Trophy Silver. The port is a perfect accompaniment to nuts, extra mature / old hard or (mild) blue cheese.
