The centenary cellars, of Real Companhia Velha, are located in Vila Nova de Gaia on the opposite side to Oporto, precisely on the left bank of the River Douro.
These cellars store a vast and unique selection of Tawny Ports – aged in oak barrels -, as well as the family’s private cellar holding over 16.000 rare bottles of Vintage Port, in which the oldest bottle dates back to 1765, preserving the prestige e reputation this house enjoys over 260 years.
Deep in the silence of our cellars, Ports rest in noble oak barrels, an artefact made by the hand of skilled coopers that have worked with the Company for many generations. Asleep in a unique environment, the barrels and vats for Port are lost in time… 10… 20… 100 years…! … The time necessary for each Port to achieve its exact point of maturation.
