The winery Quinta do Vesuvio can even trace its origins to the 1565 but it is only in the 1830 that Don Bernardo Ferreira transformed the company. In fact, that year came the first harvest after 7 long years of work necessary to transform a expanse of brushwood burned by the sun, interspersed by countless figs trees, in a winery.
However, the final result was a wonderful port capable of becoming immediately the best selling in foreign markets. The process of evolution of the winery was continued by Dona Antonia Ferreira, daughter-in-law of Don Bernardo, who managed to govern the company in one of his most difficult moments: the infestation of the phylloxera. To counter the crisis Dona Antonia diversified production and was the first to sell the wine of Quinta do Vesuvio in bottles labeled with its name and a single vintage, specializing in the production of Vintage, contributing to create the excellent reputation it now enjoys. In the 19th century the history of the winery Quinta do Vesuvio, located in the upper Douro at 120 km from Oporto, passed by the hands of the Briti Cunha family before and the Symington then, a family for more than 5 centuries in the history of the port that built a real empire D El Vino Portuguese acquiring historical brands such as Graham's, Cockburn's and precisely the Quinta do Vesuvio. The Symington have given life to the estate growing its traditions and importing new ideas, such as organic cultivation, imposing the goal of transforming the winery founded by Don Bernardo Ferreira in the best producer of Vintage port in the world.Less
