The Symington family have a long history of winemaking in the Douro valley, Northern Portugal. The family's association with the region dates back to 1652. Today, the Symington family own 1,006 hectares of vineyards in the region, the largest of any producer. The company remains 100% family owned with 5 family members actively working in the company.
The Douro valley enjoys a unique status as the world's oldest demarcated wine region and UNESCO world heritage site. Use of indigenous Douro varietals produces wines of unique and distinctive character.
Quinta do Ataide red wine is made from grapes grown on this fine 81-hectare vineyard in the remote Vilarica Valley of the Douro Superior. The vineyards at Quinta do Ataide played a key role in the recovery of the Touriga Nacional varietal in the early 1980's. Now, with some 30 years of age, these Ataide vineyards are producing wonderfully elegant wines.
