The Symingtons of Scottish, English and Portuguese descent have been Port producers in northern Portugal since 1882. For five generations they have combined their passion for producing fine wines and Ports with a deep commitment to the region’s land and people. Today, ten Symingtons work across their four famous Port houses: Graham’s, Cockburn’s, Dow’s and Warre’s, as well as their Douro wine projects – Quinta do Vesuvio, Quinta do Ataíde, Altano and Prats & Symington (of Chryseia fame) – and a new venture, Quinta da Fonte Souto in the Alto Alentejo. Symington Family Estates is one of the leading premium Port producers and the family are the leading vineyard owners in the Douro, with 26 Quintas covering 2,462 hectares, of which 1,114 ha are vineyard. All their vineyards are sustainably managed under a minimum intervention certification and 130 ha are organically farmed, the largest area of organic vineyard in northern Portugal.
