Porto Ferreira 200YO lot
This lot was marketed under the Luxury of Time concept, entirely designed by Omdesign with the aim of reflecting the new and exclusive luxury positioning that Porto Ferreira brand took its inspiration from, having the patience to wait until now to launch it on the market.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Extremely luxurious, this unique and exclusive packaging was totally handcrafted by Portuguese craftsmen, using exotic wood, silver and natural leather. It features a book inside and was auctioned by Sotheby's in the Tower of London in May 2015.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Only one person had the pleasure to open and appreciate this rarity with 5 of the most delightful Porto Ferreira Vintages.
The key that closes this packaging reinforces the exclusivity and magic of these historic Port wines.
In order to guarantee the main characteristics and quality of these wines, we produced a packaging with 5 drawers, because it is the best way to preserve them.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2014 in Porto (Portugal) and finished in May 2015, in London, with the auction by Sotheby's.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Porto Ferreira 200YO lot is totally handcrafted with luxurious materials, such as silver, exotic wood and natural leather. Inside this packaging there are 5 exceptional Porto Ferreira Vintage Port wines (1947, 1952, 1985, 1994 and 1997) and a book. Only was produced a single packaging (1 unit).

This lot contains 5 bottles of Vintage Port that fill the 200-year age-gap between the auction and the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo. It includes a 1.5-litre magnum bottle of Porto Ferreira from 1947, to celebrate the wedding of Queen Elizabeth II, and also a bottle from 1952, in honour of the Queen's accession to the throne, a rarity, coming as it does from a year when the company was one of the few to declare a Vintage.
The challenge was create a unique and luxurious packaging with 5 extraordinary Port wines that together result in 200 years.
