Van Zellers & Company

About The Brand

Van Zellers & Co. founded as a Port Wine company in the early 18th century, with the Van Zeller family tree showing relations to Port wine merchants dating as far back as the 1600’s. With nearly 400 years of experience and 15 generations, the Van Zellers have acquired deep knowledge that enables them to craft some of the world’s most exceptional Ports and wines. Nearing the celebration of 400 years in the Port trade, Van Zellers & Co has been relaunched with a new image, philosophy, and range of wines.

The Van Zeller family dedicates themselves each day to the meticulous hand-craftsmanship from planting the vines to fortifying wines in aging oak casks. Respect for the Douro’s heritage, diversity, expression, tradition, and people is the driving force behind what these storied winemakers do.

For the Van Zellers, Port can be expressed in three different categories – wines that have been crafted by hand, by time, or by nature. These three factors are mainly responsible for the creation of such diversity in the different styles, flavors, textures, and complexity behind our Port wine. It’s through craftsmanship, knowledge, time, and the magic behind nature that the family transforms their Port wine into something unique.
