Pinto dos Santos bottling was for many years the same wine as the wine bottled under the brands of Douro Wine Shippers & Growers Association. Douro Wine Shippers & Growers Association, a shipper that mostly private-labelled Port for their European clients, also shipped A. Pinto dos Santos for several years under Barros ownership.

CommentAt home with the family.
This bottle was bought as a Vintage 1943 due to the fact that 43 was written in O of SantOs. The wine dealer has obviously no idea of vintage port. This was a terrible bottle indeed.
