The Symingtons, of Anglo-Portuguese descent, have been port producers for five generations since 1882. They are the leading vineyard owners in the Douro Valley in northern Portugal with 26 different quintas totalling 1,024 ha under vine. Ten members of the fourth and fifth generation of Symingtons work together in the business across their four historic port houses: Graham’s, Cockburn’s, Dow’s and Warre’s.
Today Symington Family Estates is one of the foremost producers of premium port as well as Douro and Alentejo wines and is a leading innovator in viticulture and winemaking with research vineyards in three properties across the region.
