Founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem has remained in the same family for four generations and has always paid great attention to the production of quality Ports, resulting in recognition by the entire Wine World. With its famous Porto Velhotes range, Portugal remains the main market for Porto Cálem.
Excellent smaller Port House with an elegant house style.
Michael Broadbent’s early note from 1990:
“Fairly deep, pleasant colour, maturing nicely; nose rather hard at first but developed and sweetened in the glass; very sweet, full-bodied, crisp, citrus-edged flavour, lean. Good. At this time still family-owned, traditional, British in style, very good.”
