Grahams Vintage Port Bond - for gifting this year

The most exciting recent wine initiative I have seen is one that will be a great convenience for those looking to pre-purchase the current vintage for birth and wedding gifts. Graham’s Port is resolving this conundrum by offering a Vintage Port Bond, which can then be redeemed once the wine has been bottled and shipped. The buyer will receive a “Bond Receipt” and “Vintage Port Bond Certificate”, with the latter given to the individual for whom this gift is ultimately intended.
Paul Symington, joint managing director of Graham’s parent company Symington Family Estates, said that the new bond “makes for an original, enjoyable and memorable gift to mark a special occasion, particularly the birth of a child. The beneficiary will be able to enjoy the vintage Port and appreciate its extraordinary evolution at special occasions throughout life, maturing as he or she does,” he remarked.
Graham’s has assured me that if a vintage Port is not “declared” (or not released for sale due to a poor harvest) in that year then the bond holder will receive two lots of Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos Vintage Port. In the unlikely event that no vintage Port at all is made in any given year then a full refund will be guaranteed or an alternative year offered.
