Maynard’s is the flagship brand of Fernando and Alvaro Van Zeller’s Vinihold’s company. Named after the first established English Port wine shipper in Oporto, the Maynard’s brand honors the story of the late Walter Maynard, born in 1652, an illustrious ancestor of the van Zeller family through his marriage to Dorothea Augusta Kopke, recorded as one of the first traders to ever export Port wine to England. The brand has a premium positioning evident in every detail, from the selection of wines to the final presentation of the product itself, particularities that make all the difference, the paradigm of a unique product with centuries of tradition.

Walter Maynard is the name of one of the oldest wine merchants to have shipped Port back in 1652. He was appointed Consul in Oporto by his brother Thomas, who was English Council in Lisbon, by order of King Charles II in 1659. The 1st family link with the van Zellers come through marriage of Dorothea Ignacia Wittingham with Johan Moring, which her mother-in-law was Marianna van Zeller, married with Jacome Moring. Later, her great-granddaughter Dorothea Augusta Kopke who was Walter Maynard's 5th generation of descendants, married with Roberto van Zeller. Three centuries later, representing the 15th generation is the manager of Maynard's for the US market, Mariana van Zeller. Nowadays, Maynard's stands for a complete line of premium ports, honoring the late memory of their illustrious ancestor.

This wine is perfect to accompany chocolate desserts and blue cheeses, such as Stilton, Saint Agur or Roquefort. The blend of the best Port grapes characterizes this wine as robust, old-fashioned with exceptional body and grip. It has a fruity flavor, with a sense of black cherry, red plum and blackberry. The tannins are smooth, rounded and luscious, giving this port great complexity. It is aged in large vats with 50 pipes capacity for 4 to 6 years.
