Visiting Ferreira in Porto
Ferreira was founded in 1751, five years before the demarcation of the Douro Valley. Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira was an example in the nineteenth-century of good business, social engagement for the weak and keeper of a high quality port wine production.
Ferreira was from the start a Portuguese company and is it still today.
Outside the cellars
A series of tanks for the freshly pressed wine before it is distributed out in fats and casks.
Some of the big fats used for Ruby production.
Casks and fats in long rows, notice the wooden floor made to minimize damage to casks when being rolled around.
A display of empty vintage port wines, the real treasure of company vintage wines was not on display to the public.
