The Symingtons are a family of British and Portuguese origin that has lived and worked in Portugal since the 19th century. The family business - run by the 4th and 5th generation - is founded on a deep commitment to Portugal's people, its lands and its wines. Today there are 10 family members working across the business, committed to producing the finest ports and wines and building on the achievements of the previous generations.
The Symingtons own and run four of the leading port houses, Graham's, Dow's, Warre's, and Cockburn's, as well as a portfolio of Douro wines consisting of Quinta do Vesuvio, Quinta do Ataíde, Altano, and Prats & Symington (a widely acclaimed joint venture that produces Chryseia and Post Scriptum). The family has recently launched a new project, Quinta da Fonte Souto, in the Alto Alentejo sub-region of Portalegre. The Symingtons are the leading vineyard owners in the Douro Valley with 26 Quintas covering a total of 2,255 ha of which 1,024 ha are under vine.
