What is the best closure for Vintage Port?

Post by christopherpfaff » 15:54 Fri 28 Apr 2017

Oscar Quevedo start some weeks ago a very interesting experiment to answer this question.

He bottled his 2014 Vintage Port with 3 different closures:

- natrual cork
- screwcap
- plastic cork

+ a fourth bottle in "pota" shape (with natural cork)

to see in a decade or so with what closre the wine (in all bottles is exactly the same) matures better.

See also my new video about this project:


The set is availible in a wooden box. 500 boxes are made.
"An one litre bottle [of port] is the right size for two persons, if one person doesn´t drink." - Dirk Niepoort

Here in Norway we can get Quevedo LBV 2011 in 20cl bottles with screwcap.(But no bigger bottles unfortunately.)
