Later in the morning, our ‘1821 Premium Port’ will be released. Douglas Vale Historic Homestead and Vineyard are celebrating the Port-Macquarie-Hastings Bicentenary with this superb port. The new archive storage facility provides an office area to catalogue and record all their artifacts and a secure storage area for historic items that are not currently able to be displayed. The ‘1821 Premium Port’ is made from the heirloom Black Isabella grape variety, which is now over 150 years old. This Port has been specifically bottled to celebrate the 2021 Bi-Centenary. Wood matured in oak casks for eight years it has developed into a slightly sweet, rich and soft wine.
