F. Martins

This House is mentioned in Andre L. Simon book ‘Port’ from 1934 and has been associated with Hutcheson between 1970 and 1985. Probably 1989 was also bottled by Hutcheson. We do not know anything more about this house. If it still exists it may belong to Sogevinus and 2003 was bottled by Feist.

Martins Vintages:1970 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1974 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1977 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1978 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1979 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1980 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1982 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1983 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1985 (bottled by Hutcheson), 1989 (bottled by Hutcheson), 2003 (bottled by Feist)
