Antónia Adelaide Ferreira

Antónia Adelaide Ferreira

A story that inspires

Antónia Adelaide Ferreira is the name of the emblematic figure in the history of the Douro whose legacy grows with each new harvest. Each limited edition wine celebrates afresh the birthday of Dona Antónia and her passion, determination and vision. This is a wine that unites the Cima Corgo and the Douro Superior, the terroirs she loved blessed with the potential to produce wines in her image: firm yet balanced, lively yet mature and elegant.

Our Winemaker

To create the best wines, we combine science with technology and winemakers who put all their knowledge into each brand, with dedication and passion.

Luís Sottomayor

When he joined the team of master Fernando Nicolau de Almeida in 1989, Luís Sottomayor knew he was in the right place to be part of producing the Douro's very best wines. His academic career took him to France and Australia, while today, recognised for his skill and the quality of his work, he leads Sogrape's Douro winemaking team, responsible for wines such as the mythic Barca-Velha and the famous vintages of Porto Ferreira and Sandeman Tawnies.
