Although a relatively new producer in the Douro the Alves de Sousa family have a rich tradition of winemaking going back five generations. Having abandoned his plans to become a civil engineer, Domingos followed in his family’s footsteps to become a winemaker. The move paid off as Domingos has become the only producer in history to twice receive the Portuguese ”Winemaker of the Year“ The winery was founded in 1992 and farms exclusively from Estate owned vineyards or “Quintas”.
The port is a a blend Touriga Franca, Tinta Cao and Tinta Barroca, combine to produce the quintessential tawny style. Amber in colour and having been matured for 20 years in barrel it is rich with caramel and toffee flavours on the palate. Balanced by faint hints of nuts and herbs this port is the perfect accompaniment to sticky toffee pudding.
