PORT WINES - silva reis

The Silva Reis family has been associated to the Port industry for four generations, starting with José dos Reis, who was born in 1895.

Nevertheless, it was his son, Manuel da Silva Reis (1921-2007), who having started working very young had a meteoric career in a post-war period, increasing the Silva Reis holdings through acquisitions and becoming a major vineyard owner in the Douro valley.

As a man who was driven by the production of great Ports, Manuel da Silva Reis carefully studied the terroirs, identifying the very best parcels for Port-making and ensuring the growing reputation of the Silva Reis Port brand.
