Port

The early 1800s was a watershed era for the vintners of Portugal’s Douro Valley, On one hand, the grape harvest of 1820, after fermenting and aging for four years, presented connoisseurs with a wine of remarkable sweetness, with “plenty of crust and plenty of color…and a well-stained cork,” according to T.G. Shaw, who recorded his views in Wine, the Vine, and the Cellar (1863), The remarkable vintage established Portuguese wine as a favorite among the British.

Borges & Irmao

Founded in 1884 by brothers Antonio and Francisco, the Sociedade dos Vinhos Borges soon became one of the main national winemaking companies. Taking into account that Portuguese wines can only establish themselves in the world by means of their excellence, Borges has always been committed to quality in its production, today exporting to more than fifty countries of the five continents.
