Visiting A Legend of the Port Trade
Symington Family Estates
Earlier this year, I made my first wine-related work trip to Portugal and third overall. I had the chance to check out the newly renovated Dow's Quinta do Bomfim in the Douro and the Graham's 1890 Port lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia, just across the Douro river from Porto with the rest of the Port Lodges. Both were stunningly refurbished recently and designed for the visitor to leave impressed and quite frankly blown away by Portuguese and Symington hospitality.
