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.

  • Quinta Ferreira Estate Winery Chardonnay 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This more traditional, barrel fermented example from the Oliver sub-region of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia Canada has an nice apple-pear nose with a pleasant vanilla topping. On the palate, this light-bodied chard exhibits good behavior with balance and gentle tannin. A nice effort and well-priced. Read More

  • Ferreira 10 Year Tawny Port "Quinta Do Porto" NV

    Snoothrank:

    Admittedly, I haven't had a lot of 10/20 year old tawny's (yet), but I'm really loving this one. I honestly enjoy it almost as much as a (much more expensive) 1992 vintage I had a few months ago. A good value. Read More
