    ACQUISITION OF GRAHAM’S BY THE SYMINGTON FAMILY, 1970

    Graham’s first harvest under the ownership of the Symington family was extremely auspicious, with Graham’s 1970 Vintage Port being declared. The 1970 is thought by many to be one of the greatest wines of that century.

    Nearly an hundred years after their ancestor AJ Symington left Graham’s to set up on his own as a Port producer, the family’s relationship with this Port house came full circle.

    Besides the family’s other Port marques, Graham’s is the only remaining British Port company independently owned by a single family. This ensures that every aspect in the making of Graham’s Ports is controlled and cared for intimately.

        John Major, while British Prime Minister, spent numerous summer holidays in the Douro, enjoying the unique isolation and peace that it affords. He spent two summers in 1993 and 1994 at Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos, where one of the rooms is still referred to as ‘The Prime Minister’s Room’.

            Under the management of the Symington family, Graham’s continues to be a pioneer, balancing the best of tradition with the latest technology in pursuit of their mission: to make the finest Port possible.

            In recent years the Symington family has invested significantly in Graham’s vineyards in the Douro. They have also installed some of the world’s most sophisticated winemaking equipment in the centuries-old winery at Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of Graham’s viticulture and vinification has never been better.
