Portuguese wine producer Sogrape Vinhos has opened a new winery for Sandeman, its international Port brand.

The company says it has invested approximately E7.5m in the Quinta do Seixo facility, which is gravity-fed and boasts four types of press and uses four types of maceration processes.

It is being hailed as the most technically advanced winery in Portugal and the company says it will revolutionise its Douro production.

The Quinta do Seixo estate has belonged to Sogrape, which also owns the Mateus Rosé brand, since 1987 and is one of the seven largest estates owned by the company in the Douro demarcated region.
