Our Wine

Port

Ficklin Vineyards has been hand-crafting traditional Ports using estate grown Portuguese varietals since the first crush in 1948. The vineyard is planted with Touriga Nacional, Tinta Madeira, Souzao, and Tinta Cào. We produce many styles of Port, and many special blends with these four incredible varieties.

Old Vine Tinta Port

Ficklin Vineyards is home to a solera system comprised of 323 barrels with a capacity of over 23,000 gallons. Our Old Vine Tinta Port is bottled from this unique fractional blending system. It took a few years, beginning with the first harvest on 1948, to fill the solera, but it has never been emptied. Every barrel and puncheon, and every bottle of the Old Vine Tinta Port has a diminishing percentage of the original 1948 harvest, and every subsequent harvest. It is truly a living history of the wines made at Ficklin.

Iberian Table Wines

Made with Portuguese and Spanish varietals, our line of table wines offers both red and white wines. The current line-up includes Touriga, Tinta Cào, Tempranillo, Vinha Velha, Verdelho, and Branco Doce. At Ficklin Vineyards our grapes are all hand-picked and crushed with a press that has been in use since 1948.
