A superb Tawny from a leading Port house. Dow's Tawny is a very fine and delicate style, with pretty red fruits balanced by nutty depth derived from an average of three years aging in small oak casks. Owned by the historic and also very modern Symington family stable of Ports, the Dow's has both pedigree and sheer quality on its side.

Its Origins

Owned by the ubiquitous Port family of Symington (solely, since 1961) through many years of growth and mergers. The great house of Dow’s was established in 1798 by Bruno da Silva, a Portuguese wine merchant from Oporto based in London. This savvy businessman was one of the few to ship during the Napoleonic Wars, with his Port ships equipped with guns. The name DOW comes from the merge of Silva’s company with that of another famous Port company, Dow & Co. Throughout the 20th Century and into the 21st, the Symington family has built on the legacy of the preceding Silva and Dow families. The heart of the wines of Dow’s are the two quintas (vineyards) of Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora. These are some of the Douro’s finest vineyards, and allow perfect exposure, drainage and growing conditions year round.
