Country Of Origin: Portugal

Founded in 1981 by John Graham, Churchill’s was the first British Port wine company to have been established in over 50 years.

 

His desire was to set up a company to produce his own, individual style of wine. It was his wife, Caroline Churchill, who provided the company with its name. In an industry where others are hundreds of years old, Churchill's were new challengers to the market. 


In 1999 they bought their own Vineyards – Quinta da Gricha – a 50 hectare Grade “A” Vineyard estate situated on the south bank of the River Douro, in the prestigious Cima Corgo sub-region. All of Churchill's ports are produced here, in traditional granite “lagares” or treading tanks built in 1852.

Since then the company have also produced a table wine business – Churchill Estates, launched in 2004 to grow the wine portfolio.

 

Today Churchill's are known as a high quality “boutique” Port and Douro Wine Company creating premium Port and Douro Wine staying true to traditional methods but with modern innovations to tune each taste and create experiences and events that are truly inventive in the industry.


Reserve Port is a house blend of premium wines produced from the same top grade "A" vineyards from which Churchill's vintage ports are sourced.  It has a field blend of many varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinta Francisca.  Reserve Port retains the structure and fresh fruit of a young vintage but has been softened by its age in wood and filtration prior to bottling.  The Reserve Port wines are matured in seasoned oak vats for a period of 3 years.
