For more than 175 years Delaforce has been associated with excellent Port wine from the famous Douro Valley of Portugal. David Delaforce is now working in close co-operation with Real Companhia Velha (RCV), the owner of the Delaforce brand, to produce and market world-class Douro wines side by side with the renowned Delaforce Ports. He is heading up the wine selection and marketing while Pedro Silva Reis, chairman of RCV, manages affairs on the home front.
Two of RCV’s premium vineyards, Aciprestes and Cidrô, have been chosen to provide the grapes for this exciting project. A highlight of the strategy is to showcase two of the world’s best grape varieties: Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon. The range consists of three wines – a single vineyard premium Red; a ripe and luscious Touriga Nacional; the ground-breaking “Super-Douro” blend of Touriga Nacional and Cabernet Sauvignon.
