Ficklin Vineyards, established in 1946, is the first Port wine made in the United States entirely from the four true Portuguese grape varieties. These celebrated Port Grapes have been selected to produce our rare Ficklin Tinta Port: Tinta Madeira for its fruity, almost spicy quality; Tinta Cao for its soft delicate flavor; the aromatic Souzao for its beautiful color; and the Touriga for its rich, full flavor. The grapes reach their perfection in our vineyards under the favorable climatic conditions of southern Madera County. Through the selection of perfect clusters, the making of wines in small lots, the aging for several years in small oak casks, and the final aging in bottles, each bottle has received our personal care. Today, winemaker Peter Ficklin continues the family tradition started by his father David, and his grandfather Walter.
