​Douro Valley Vineyard Map

The Symington family have built up over several generations the largest vineyard holding in the Upper Douro Valley, and indeed in Portugal. This unmatched collection of very fine vineyards, spread along the length and breadth of the Douro Valley, provides the foundation which sustains the quality of the family’s Port and Douro DOC wines. This map allows you to find the location of all our vineyards, or Quintas, as they are called in Portugal.


Our Experimental Grape Variety Field

In the spring of 2014 we established an ampelographic field at our Quinta do Ataíde vineyard in the Douro Superior, which we named Symington Grape Variety Library. It is the only large-scale experimental grape variety field in northern Portugal and builds on our extensive viticulture research and development work of recent decades.

The objectives of this long-term research project are to help preserve the genetic diversity of the Douro’s grape varieties whilst studying their viticultural and oenological potential. Symington’s viticulture team will seek to recover the forgotten varieties that may prove suitable for planting in the Douro’s varied terroirs in the future.
