Quinta de Roriz

Quinta de Roriz is one of the oldest and finest estates in the Douro, well-known by the end of the 17th century, and was in the hands of the van Zeller family for much of the 19th and 20th centuries. Roriz was one of the first Ports to be bottled and shipped under the name of the quinta itself, and this continued into the early years of the 20th century. Through the 18th and 19th centuries, the leading London wine merchants paid premium prices for Roriz Ports and there are numerous records of the high values obtained for the Quinta’s wines at Christie's fine wine auctions throughout the 19th century. After some years of joint ownership and management with the van Zeller family during the first few years of the 21st century, the quinta and the name were acquired outright by the Symington and Prats families in 2009.
