Esporao purchased the winery in 2008 and since then under the direction of wine maker David Baverstock and Jose Luis Moreira da Silva it has gone from strength to strength producing some of Portugal's best award winning wines and ports. There aim is to produce fresh, versatile and food friendly wines.
