About The Brand

The family name comes from the small city of Moelln in northern Germany, deriving from the word “Burgomestre,” meaning head of the municipality.

At the end of the 18th century, the company was dissolved and Henry Burmester Jr. established a new port wine company alongside his two sons, Frederick and Edward—H. Burmester & Sons. In 2005, the Sogevinus–Fine Wines Group acquired the Burmester Company, continuing the tradition of producing Porto wines of excellence.

Our mission is to ensure leadership in terms of quality, with Burmester investing in the high quality of its wines, continuing the tradition that has been followed throughout its 250-year history.
