“Ferreira Late Bottled Vintage Porto (or LBV) is a superior quality Port that combines the unique characteristics of its vintage with a versatility that allows it to be appreciated immediately or aged in the bottle. LBV Porto Wines are single vintage wines bottled 4-6 years after the harvest.”
The story of Ferreira is inextricably associated with one extraordinary woman. Daughter of one of the company’s founders, Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira was born in the country town of Régua, gateway to the winelands of the Douro Valley, in 1811. Though small in stature and reserved by nature, Dona Antónia was charismatic, visionary and entrepreneurial. She created new expanses of terraced vineyards and improved the hard lives of local farming families. Such was the local people’s affection for her that they gave her the diminutive nickname ‘A Ferreirinha’ – ‘the little Ferreira lady’. When ‘The Ferreirinha’ died in 1896, she left behind a portfolio of great Douro estates and an immensely successful business.
Today, more than 250 years after its foundation, Ferreira is the only great Porto Wine house to have always remained in Portuguese family hands. Ferreira is “the Portuguese brand”, the benchmark in excellent, quality Porto and Douro wines, the symbol of a country and a culture it proudly honors.
