David Guimaraens, a sixth-generation winemaker at Fonseca, discusses the history and winemaking process of the renowned vintage port house. https://www.fonseca.pt/en 

He explains that Fonseca is located in Vila Nova de Gaia, separate from the vineyards in the Douro region where the grapes are grown. Guimaraens describes how his ancestors built relationships with local farmers and brought the port down from the Douro Valley to Vila Nova de Gaia for aging and blending. He also discusses the traditional method of foot treading used to extract color and tannin from the grape skins. 

Guimaraens emphasizes the importance of vintage port, which is made from the best ports of a single harvest and ages in the bottle to develop rich flavors and aromas. He explains the process of decanting vintage port to remove sediment and highlights its ability to age for decades. 

Guimaraens also discusses Fonseca Bin 27, a port that was launched by his father in 1972 and is known for its fruitiness and versatility. 

He concludes by sharing the history of his family's involvement with Fonseca and the significance of the Fonseca name.
