Established in 1751, the Portuguese winemaker Ferreira has been producing some of the best wines and ports in the Douro region ever since. Those 250 years of experience, care, and tradition come through in their Porto Ferreira Tawny . Since 1987, Ferreira has been part of the Sogrape Vinhos portfolio of brands, a family company that produces and provides the world with high-quality Portuguese wines.
Porto Ferreira Tawny is a traditional red fortified wine made under the watchful eye of winemaker Luís Sottomayor. Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, and Tinta Amarela grapes are hand-picked before being crushed with their skins to allow the best parts of the skins to leave their mark on the final product. This mixture is allowed to ferment under carefully controlled conditions until wine alcohol is added to halt fermentation and retain the natural sweetness. This mixture is aged in oak casks from two to five years. The blended selection which makes it into the bottle of Porto Ferreira Tawny is an average of four years of age.
This beautiful red port from the famous Douro region is elegant and mature. The natural sweetness is set off nicely by the tannins. Serve it as an aperitif, paired with nuts or strong cheeses, including blue cheese. It also marries beautifully with desserts.

Ferreira Tawny has a beautiful red colour with clear notes and a delicate, youthful aroma, with hints of dried fruit and spices, from the barrel. The palate is an elegant wine that shows the correct balance between tannins and softness that gives a long finish.
Known since 1751 and established by a wine-growing family of the same name from the Douro, FERREIRA has for centuries been synonymous with high-quality Portuguese wine. FERREIRA'S history follows and is hard to distinguish from the history of the Douro Demarcated Region's evolution (set up in...
