Founded in 1981 by John Graham and his two brothers Anthony and William, Churchill’s was the first British Port wine company to have been established in over 50 years.

Churchill’s Port grew from John Graham’s desire to continue his family’s Port making tradition by setting up a company to produce his own, individual style of wine.

In only 30 years of trading the company has built an enviable reputation for producing Port Wines of the highest quality, reflected by their impressive performance at comparative tastings over this time.

In 1999 Churchill’s bought Quinta da Gricha, a 50 hectare Grade “A” Vineyard estate situated on the south bank of the River Douro between Pinhão and Tua, in the prestigious Cima Corgo sub-region of the demarcated Douro Port Wine region.

All Churchill’s ports are produced at the Quinta da Gricha winery in the traditional granite “lagares” or treading tanks built in 1852.

Since the acquisition of its own Quinta vineyards, Churchill’s has also been developing a table wine business which currently offers an excellent quality Douro DOC wine with a unique identity that distinguishes from others for its freshness and purity of fruit.

Churchill Estates, the driving force in Churchill’s wine portfolio, was launched in 2004 and has been a huge success, of which we are very proud.

Churchill’s is today positioned in the industry as a high quality “boutique” Port and Douro Wine Company, specializing in premium Port and Douro Wine category.
