Symington Family Estates’ US online portfolio focuses on their esteemed Port houses: Graham’s, Cockburn’s and Dow’s as well as their wine brands from the Douro Valley of Portugal, including Quinta do Vesuvio and Prats & Symington. In 2017 they launched a new venture, Quinta da Fonte Souto, in the Alto Alentejo.
The launch of Vintage and Fine Wines features special packages of wines that reflect preferred pricing and the option for consumers to sign up for a virtual wine tasting with San Francisco based Hugh Symington, a member of the 5th generation of the revered Port producing family.
“In times like these, Port is increasingly being enjoyed as more of an everyday indulgence for those of us hunkering down at home. It is the quintessential meditative wine that can not be rushed. I am looking forward to meeting many US consumers virtually during our guided tastings. We have something for everyone, including red table wines, from the most exciting wine region in the world– Portugal!” — Hugh Symington, 5th generation, Symington Family Estates.
