Martinez was founded in 1790 by the Spaniard Sebastian Gonzalez Martinez, who sold Port, sherry and cigars from an office in Mincing Lane in the City of London. In 1822 he was joined by an Englishman, John Peter Gassiot, a Member of The Royal Society and a great friend of Faraday the famous scientist.

Martinez Gassiot was well known for its swift sailing ships, the “Betsy” and the “Maria Manuela”, which carried its wines from Oporto to the West Country of England.
