Originally famous for the production of Port, the Douro is now increasingly becoming known for its high quality red and white wines.
In 1979 the demarcated region of the Douro was granted its Denomination of Origin for table wine and since then both the production and quality of table wines have increased dramatically. It is now apparent that this region is capable of producing wines that can rival the very best in the world, yet due to the unique terroir and grape varieties they have a highly distinctive character and style not to be found elsewhere.
Since 1999 Altano has been the flagship brand for the table wines produced by Symington Family Estates, famous for producing Port and with over a century’s expertise of winemaking in the Douro Valley.
The range is made up of two red wines, Altano Organic and the flagship Altano Quinta do Ataíde Reserva, together with a zesty, aromatic white.
