This historic estate is situated on the north bank of the Douro River near the village of Pinhão.
The property derived its name from Vale do Bomfim, ‘the well-placed valley’, the old name for the area around Pinhão. In 1912, Andrew James Symington became a partner in Dow’s. Since then generations of Symington winemakers have worked the vineyards to create the finest port wine for Dow’s.
Today, the family of British and Portuguese, 10 people of the the 4th and the 5th generations of the Symington family run four port houses: Graham’s, Dow’s, Warre’s, and Cockburn’s, as well as Douro wines producers.
Quinta do Bomfim is the home of the two most famous vintage ports: Dow’s 2007 Vintage Port awarded 100 Points by the Wine Spectator, and Dow’s 2011 Vintage Port which was nominated the N°1 Wine in the World in 2014.
