Ferreira was the first producer of Port. It was founded by Portuguese wine producers in 1751, when foreign merchants from the North of Europe were already selling wines from Porto.

It was Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira in the 17th Century, the great-granddaughter of the founder and a widow at 33 years of age, who devoted all of her energy into building Ferreira. A visionary, she redrew the map of the AOC Porto designation by extensively planting vines and promoting the wine-producing area.

Her determination was not in vain since Ferreira still has one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Douro region. More than just the Number One brand in Portugal, Ferreira is considered by the Portuguese to be part and parcel of the country’s cultural heritage.

The essence of the Ferreira brand is its commitment to the deepest values of “Portugueseness”: a connection with the soil and the passion and sophistication that come from simplicity. It is this culture that Ferreira evokes to honour the founding spirit and memory of such an iconic brand, assuming cultural continuity as an element of it’s identity to be projected into the future.

Ferreira is the authentic taste of Porto Wine!
