Amandio is very rare as vintage Port, bottled by Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro, better known as Real Companhia Velha or Royal Oporto.
However, Amandio’s also exists as tawny and old colheitas bottled by Amandio Silva & Filhos Ltda. The last colheita we know of that is bottled by Amandio Silva is the 1955 Old Tawny. There is an Amandio's Old Tawny 1960 with identical lable bottled by Companhia Geral da Agricultura das Vinhas do Alto Douro. We do not know but it is likely that Amandio Silva & Filhos was a small company bought by the Real Companhia Velha Group in the 1960’ies. We are grateful for any information about this brand.
