His Eminence's Choice is one of the oldest Port brands, well known and respected throughout the world. Since 1868 the traditional art of selecting and aging the finest ports has been passed down from one generation to the next, earning Delaforce its reputation as master of the blend. Mellow and elegant 10 year old Tawny, with a smooth palate and ripe luscious flavor, is drawn from Delaforce's extensive reserves of mature port fully aged in oak casks.

Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo). Bottled by Quinta and Vineyard Bottlers Vinhos S.A., which is owned by The Taylor Fladgate Partnership but the Delaforce brand itself is owned by Real Companhia Velha. The members of the Delaforce family, of Huguenot origin, can trace their history back over 400 years. Their involvement in the port business dates from 1834 when John Fleurriet Delaforce came to Oporto to set up a new firm called Martinez Gassiot on behalf of its partners. In 1868 his son George Henry Delaforce founded his own firm, the House of Delaforce. Delaforce has developed a reputation for its outstanding blending and aging skills, which express themselves in the company's renowned, aged-tawny ports, His Eminence’s Choice and Curious & Ancient. Both brands were originally created in the 1930s. The house is also celebrated for the elegant and finely-constituted Delaforce vintage ports produced from grapes grown in the Roncao and Rio Torto areas of the Douro. Today, Delaforce is owned and run by Real Companhia Velha, also known as Royal Oporto, who have over 250 years of existence and uninterrupted activity in the port-wine trade.
