Founded in 1798 and 100% family-owned, Dow's is one of the great names in Port,
associated with the finest expressions from the vineyards of the Upper Douro Valley.
Throughout the 20th Century and into the 21st, the Symington family has built on the
legacy of the preceding Silva and Dow families.
Generations of Symington winemakers
have worked at the Dow's vineyards, Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da
Ribeira, creating from them superbly concentrated wines that are intense and tannic
when young, maturing towards a superlative racy elegance with age and scented with
violet and mint aromas. Dow's distinctively dry finish is the recognisable hallmark of the
wines from this great Port house.
