Offley is one of the many brands owned by Sogrape, the No.1 wine company in Portugal. With over 1600 hectares of vineyards under its control, Sogrape is a family-owned winery established by the Guedes family. It was during 1942 that Fernando van Zeller Guedes, along with 15 friends, established a community known as “Sociedade Comercial dos Vinhos de Mesa de Portugal.” He started this to bring the winemakers of Portugal together and to improve the market of Portugal wines in the international arena. Today, this society is what we all know as the prestigious company, Sogrape.
Offley, one of the brands of Sogrape, is known for creating innovative, effervescent and versatile vines. This label was launched by the passionate winemaker and expert visionary, Joseph James Forrester. The wines created here are definitely a class apart, and they hit as you like a wave of fresh air, from the other usual Port wines that you might have been used to.
