In 1730, Henry Burmester and John Nash founded Burmester & Nash in London, a cereal trading company. They moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and in 1750 began shipping port wine to the British Isles and the rest of Europe. The family name originates from the German word 'Burgmeester', meaning 'mayor' - as the family came from the small north Germany city of Moelln. The firm was dissolved at the end of the 18th century, when Henry Burmester Jr. and his two sons, Fredrick and Edward, set up a new port wine company, H.Burmester & Sons. From 1952 onwards, the Burmester Gilbert generation - Helmut and Arnold- took over the business, having founded, in 1962 another port company - Gilberts e Cº. From generation to generation, the Burmesters and Gilberts were noted for their know-how and commitment to the port business, raising the Burmester profile and ensuring the highest level of international recognition. – Description from Kursulla
