Douro Boys celebrate 15th Anniversary


How, perhaps, should they celebrate their 15th anniversary? How best to mark the milestone? Well, after careful consideration, the five Douro Boys decided to collaborate on creating both a Red Wine Cuvée and a Vintage Port. The two blends are from the extraordinary 2017 vintage, and therefore of outstanding quality & character.

50 Lots of exclusive experiences

Both the Cuvée 2017 and the Vintage Port 2017 will be sold exclusively at an auction that will be held on 10 October in the Douro Valley. 750 magnums of the Douro Boys Red Wine Cuvée 2017 and 350 magnums of the Douro Boys Vintage Port 2017 will be auctioned by Peter Mansell (Christie’s, London). A total of 50 lots will go under the hammer, including not only the extraordinary blends, but also some rarities from the five quintas, as well as opportunities for experiences with the producers themselves and some special fun moments, such as a game of chess with Dirk Niepoort or a surfing lesson with Miguel Roquette…
