Ferreira is one of the top Port producers, based in the Douro region of Portugal. The Ferreira family was already making wines in the Douro by the 1750s, a few years before it became an officially recognized wine region in 1756. When Doña Antonia Adelaïde Ferreira, great-granddaughter of the winery’s founder, became a widow at age 33, she decided to channel all her energy and time into building up the business, expanding grape-planting, production and promotion of the winery. All this effort helped build Ferreira into a facility that is still one of the largest and most successful in the region. Ferreira meticulously selects grapes and controls all stages of wine production. They still use a pressing technique that mimics the quality achieved by manual foot-pressing. They are known for their elegant style, not too strong and concentrated, as Doña Antonio preferred it.  Read less

This Reserva shows the beginnings of a tawny character while still keeping some of the freshness of young ruby. The color is beginning to go pale, the spirit is showing through, but the red fruits are still there.

Always one of the best 20-year-olds, and this is no exception. The secret is in the velvet-like smoothness, which combines with a balanced mix of fig and caramel flavors, just a touch of burnt vanilla and the sort of acidity that makes you want another glass. Delicious.

Rich, smooth and polished, with an array of dried apricot, pear and guava notes that are accented by plenty of apple wood smoke notes. The lush finish surges with mineral, along with hints of peat and ginger cream.
