Messias Port

Messias Port, founded in 1926, is a leading name in fortified wines, especially port wine, for which Portugal is famous. The founder, Messias Baptista, started a tradition of winemaking in the Douro Valley, one of Portugal's top wine regions. Based in Mealhada, Portugal, the company is known for its commitment to quality in making port and still wines.

Port Wine

Port wine comes from the Douro Valley's steep hills. It is usually sweet and red, perfect for desserts, but also comes in dry, semi-dry, and white types. Grapes like Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz are used. They are fermented and fortified with grape spirit. This process makes a strong, aromatic wine. Messias Port adds great care to this method, ensuring each bottle captures the Douro's essence.

Messias offers various ports, including vintage, tawny, white, and ruby. Each has its own taste. Their vintage ports, made only in the best years, age well. They mature for many years, developing complex flavours.

House Style

The Tawny Ports show the beauty of aged wine. They age in wooden barrels, gaining a mix of dried fruits, nuts, and spices. This process shows their expertise in blending.

While known for ports, Messias also makes acclaimed red and white still wines. These wines have won international awards, showing the company's range and skill.

The Messias Ethos

The company does more than make wine. They welcome visitors from around the world to their vineyards and wineries. Guests can see how wine is made and learn about the company's history and values.

Messias exports to over 60 countries, showing its global appeal. The company is committed to quality and tradition. They blend old methods with new ideas. Their wines tell the story of their origin, the land, and the people who make them. With almost 100 years of history, Messias Port combines tradition and modernity. Their wines are not just drinks but stories of their heritage, rich in history and character.
