The history of Port wines began in the Douro Valley in the northwest of Portugal. Wines of this type were already produced in this region while it was still part of Ancient Rome. But it was only in 1675 that the Port designation became truly recognized. Our wine maker, José Manuel Sousa Soares, ensures the quality of our Port wines, taking care of their age, structure, persistence, aroma and guaranties the consistency of blended Ports. Porto Cruz quality and expertise are recognized and renowned across the world.
