The company Real Companhia Velha can be proud of nearly 300 years of ininterrupted production of Portugal's most fampous export article: port wine.
It was founded on September 10th, 1756 by King Joseph I., who included the most important vintners of this region for the production process. And it was a success that big, that even the French emperor Napoleon I. demanded this brand's wines for his soldiers as rations during the French invasion. And you can tell the same story about his enemy, the duke of Wellington, who asked for wine for his Britsh troops.
The brand persevered through various revolutions and wars, grew and became stronger. Today Real Companhia Velha is one of Portugal's most important port wine brands and exporters, which is only justifiable so.
