Object of the Month - December 2020

Every month the Museum of the Oldest Appellation in the World highlights one of the many objects that are part of the collection shown in our permanent exhibition. Come and discover the object of the month and find out more about our history.

The Carvalhas Memories, very old tawny bottle belongs to a limited edition that was released during the Company’s 260th anniversary celebration. The Port wine in this bottle belongs to the harvest of 1867 at Quinta das Carvalhas. After 149 years of ageing, it was bottled in 2016. Since this is an exclusive edition only 260 bottles where produced, it has both a unique and traditional design.

This set is on display in the showcase of historic bottles from Real Companhia Velha, located in the seventh and last exhibition area of the Museum of the Oldest Appellation in the World.
