Following the custom of naming Fonseca’s Crusted Ports using bin numbers such as Bin 740 or Bin 82 VG, Alistair Robertson (Fonseca’s Chairman) decided to call the new blend Bin 27, in a revival of this tradition, in 1972 when the project came to fruition.
To thousands of wine drinkers and Port lovers, Bin 27 is the wine that springs to mind. This rich and fruity reserve blend, sold all over the world, has a particularly loyal following in North America

this has a bristle of tannins up front, melding their chocolate richness with dried fruit flavors, ending clean and sweet. The wine’s lasting spice places it with a savory pumpkin pie.

Founded in 1815, Fonseca belongs at the top of vintage port houses.
Few port producers have maintained such consistency of quality and style from vintage to vintage. From the legendary 1840, Fonseca's first Vintage Port release, to the iconic 1868 and the extraordinary 1927, 1948, 1977 and 1994, all four of them 100-point wines, the house has produced a succession of highly acclaimed wines.
James Suckling, in his authoritative book on Vintage Port, put it as follows: “The vintage Ports of Fonseca are perhaps the most consistently great of them all. Not only do they have a striking freshness and powerful richness when young, but they retain that youthfulness for decades.”
Fonseca's respect for the vineyard and the unique environment of the Douro Valley expresses itself in the firm's leadership in the field of sustainable and organic viticulture. It was the first house to offer a Port made entirely from organically produced grapes.
Perhaps more than any other Port house, being the only one with four 100 point scoring wines, Fonseca has built a loyal community of Port enthusiasts who value its individuality and the inimitable character of its wines.
