SEBASTIAN RILEY-SMITH INTERVIEWS
LEADING FIGURES FROM THE GREAT
WINE HOUSES OF THE WORLD
Alistair Robertson
Chairman of Taylor’s Port
Established over three centuries ago,
in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest
of the founding Port houses. It is
dedicated entirely to the production
of Port wine and in particular to its
finest vintage styles.
Alistair Robertson assumed
management of Taylor’s in 1966, a
role for which he has since become
known and respected the world over.
He has been responsible for several
innovations, not least the introduction
of Late Bottled Vintage Port – the
wine style that is attributed with the
recovery of the Port industry.
