Real Companhia Velha was founded by Alvará Regio de D. José I, King of Portugal in 1756, under the
the auspices of its Prime Minister Sebastião José de Carvalho e Mello, the Marques de
Dovecote Formed by the “main farmers of the Upper Douro and good men of the City of
Porto, the company was entrusted with the mission of sustaining vineyard culture, conserving
their production in their natural purity, for the benefit of Trade and Health
Public Among the numerous services provided by the company to the public cause, the following stand out:
most notable because of its enormous importance the so-called “Pombaline
Douro Region ”, carried out between 1758 and 1761 by the Deputies of the
Administration of the Real Companhia Velha. Thanks to this far-reaching economic measure,
delimited the wine region of Feitoria do Douro, which is the oldest demarcated region of
Douro Today, Real Companhia Velha is one of the main Port wine producers and
owns some of the best farms in the region.
Jorge Moreira is an important figure in a quality rebirth currently experienced by the
company. He returned to Real Companhia Velha ten years after his departure, dedicating all his
effort and passion to produce the best that the Douro has to offer: “Although RCV is a
big owner in the Douro, our operations follow the profile of a small producer. Each
plot in our vineyards is treated in a personalized and specific manner, in order to express
all their quality in our wines. Our goal is to gather a deep knowledge
the potential of each plot and each caste. However, due to the huge variety of grape varieties and
diversity present in the Douro becomes a major challenge
