Symington + Prats&Symington

STORY

For twenty years the Prats and Symington families have been part of the new wave of winemakers producing DOC wines in the Douro. The partnership between a Bordeaux winemaking family and a family of leading Douro vineyard owners combines the traditions and knowledge of two of the world's greatest wine regions. This knowledge is applied to the unique grape varieties and terroirs of the Douro valley. Having acquired the very fine Quinta de Perdiz in the Rio Torto valley in 2004, the two families acquired the legendary Quinta de Roriz in 2009. This is one of the greatest estates of the Douro with a winemaking tradition that goes back to the very early years of the 18th century. The production of Chryseia and its Partner wine Post Scriptum has moved to the Roriz winery alongside the established Prazo de Roriz DOC and Quinta de Roriz Vintage Port.
