Port "Quinta da Grisha" Vintage Port is classified as "single quinta" - "single vineyard", which is assigned to port wine from the harvest from a site that allows winemakers to demonstrate the characteristics of each terroir.
Company Churchills Graham was created relatively recently - in 1981, but managed to gain recognition in world markets as a clear leader in the production of the best Portuguese ports. Family Chёrchil-Graham - Carolyn Chёrchil, her husband John Graham and his brothers Anthony and William - was able to acquire and restore the three-castle estates in Rua da Fonte Nova, belonging to several vineyards. Age of vines grown here is 70 years, with half of vineyards according to Portuguese wine inventory belongs to the highest category - "A" class, which include the highest quality and expensive grapes. Interestingly, the grapes from the estates Churchills Graham not only assembled by hand, but chokes the oldest way - down.
