Product Description

Dow’s is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family, Port producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, supervises all the vineyards, winemaking and ageing of this wine. Dow’s owns two of the Douro’s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. They were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow’s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards.

RUBY, TAWNY & WHITE PORTS
Handpicked traditional Portuguese grape varieties (red for Ruby and Tawny; white for White Port) are harvested in the fall and fermented for a short period of time before the addition of 100% neutral grape spirits alcohol. This step stops fermentation and preserves the wine’s natural grape sugars. Dow’s Ruby, Tawny and White Ports are aged in oak casks for an average of three years and then bottled ready to drink.
