A life in the Douro

After a long career making wine and port in the Douro, Paul Symington will be in conversation with Richard Hemming MW about its past, present and future – while tasting some of the Symington Group’s best wines.

Douro with Paul Symington

Paul Symington is the former chairman of his family company, The Symington Family Estates, which comprises of Graham’s, Dow’s, Warre’s, Quinta do Versuvio and the family’s extraordinary Douro DOC wines, including the Chryseia, a joint venture with Bruno Prats.

Described by Jancis Robinson MW as “one of the luminaries of the wine world”, Paul has received many of the wine world’s highest awards including Decanter Man of the Year 2012 and Lifetime Achievement Award Institute of Masters of Wine 2019. Born and raised in the Douro Valley, Paul is the fourth generation of Symingtons to produce wine in the Douro after his great-grandfather first emigrated to Portugal in 1882.

This really is an unmissable opportunity to meet and hear the great stories of the Douro from one of the wine world’s most respected names.
