The art of making, blending and maturing fortified wines has been passed down to succeeding generations since Campbells was established in 1870.
At Campbells, they use a modified solera system to age their Muscats to ensure consistency of quality. There is a solera for each of the classifications of Muscat with the ‘rare solera’ containing the wines of four generations of Campbells.
The Campbells have gained international recognition for the quality and richness of their fortified wines.
