The Alves de Sousa family has been producing wines for several generations, initially supplying fruit and wine to other port companies. When Domingos Alves de Sousa inherited his family’s quintas in 1987, he began producing wine under the family name. Domingos studied viticulture in Bordeaux and his native Portugal, meanwhile acquiring additional properties and constructing a modern cellar at Quinta da Gaivosa, where he released his first vintage in 1991. Since then, Domingos and his wines have gained critical acclaim. Notably, he was named “Producer of the Year” by Revista de Vinhos in 1999 and 2007; he is the only person to have won this prestigious award twice. Today, Domingos and his son, Tiago, run the estate of five quintas producing both still and fortified wines.

With mellow tannins it has a nicely rounded feel in the mouth.
