Dow’s is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family. Port producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, supervises all the vineyards, winemaking and ageing of this wine. Dow’s owns two of the Douro’s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. They were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow’s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards.
Over the last twenty five years the work done in Dow’s vineyards and wineries has served to constantly improve the quality of all of Dow’s premium Ports. Nowhere has this investment been more evident than in the quality of Dow’s LBV. Dow’s LBV is full-bodied, rich but perfectly balanced with soft peppery tannins and with a fine acidity that ensures perfect balance on the palate. The classic Dow’s dry finish is always present in the house’s LBV. Dow’s LBV has consistently won more awards than most other LBV Ports on the market and has earned a reputation for excellence. It is served in countless fine restaurants, on several major international airlines and most importantly it is widely appreciated by consumers in many countries around the world.
