Cossart Gordon & Co

-

Cossart Gordon & Co. was founded in 1745 and is the oldest Madeira wine producer. The founders, Francis Newton, Thomas Gordon, and Thomas Murdoch, are from Scotland. In 1808, the arrival of William Cossart, an Irishman who came from the famous Huguenot family of France broke the Scottish domination of the company. They renamed the company Newton, Gordon, Cossart & Co. At the end of the 19th century, the company added Port, Sherry, Marsala, and Malaga to the wine portfolio. This range remained so until the beginning of the 2nd World War after which the company decided to concentrate exclusively on Madeira.
