Sandeman was founded in 1790 by George Sandeman, a young Scot from Perth.

There are few more iconic images in the world of wine than the ‘Don’, the logo created for the Sandeman family in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by students of the University of Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez.

Today, the Sandeman Ports are becoming every bit as famous as the image of the Don. This hasn’t always been the case, but since the Guedes family bought Sandeman in 2002, the major investment that has taken place in the vineyards and the winemaking has seen them rise to the top of the tree in the Port trade.

The state-of-the-art Sandeman winery, built in 2007, is at the breathtakingly beautiful Quinta do Seixo, situated on the south bank of the Douro, just downstream from Pinhão. The wines reflect the sustained investment of the Guedes family and the skill of winemaker Luís Sottomayor, gradually and modestly, he has transformed the fortunes of Sandeman.
