About the Winery
The Altano line of wines is a proud production of the Symington family, who have an experience of five generations in making Port at the Douro. Today, the family owns about 26 Quintas in the Douro Superior and the prime Cima-Corgo subregions, the largest in the Douro region. The family started producing Douro DOC wines in 1999 from their vineyards, and the wines currently enjoy a global reputation for their quality and distinctiveness.
The Symingtons strongly believe in the indigenous grape varieties of the Douro region and strive to showcase the natural fragrance, flavours and aroma of the Douro with their wines. The family follows sustainable viniculture practices with minimum interventions both in the vineyard and winery.
