History

Established in 1920 by the Costa brothers José, Manual and Albano, Caves São João are a family-run company that, in the beginning was dedicated to the sale of fine wines and liqueurs from the Douro region. This company is currently the oldest wine establishment in full activity in the Anadia district involved in the production and sale of Bairrada table wines, after a bill was passed in the 30s prohibiting the production of Port wines beyond the Vila Nova de Gaia area. At the same time, it also started producing sparkling natives, according to the ?champenoise? method, with the help and knowledge of the renowned French oenologue Gaston Mainousson. In the 40s, the company starts selling its products to Brazil and to the Portuguese colonies, in Africa. In the final years of the 50s, the company launches one of the best known brands of the Bairrada region - ?FREI JOÃO? - followed by the no less famous ?PORTA DOS CAVALEIROS?, from the Dão region. Classifying some of its wines as ?RESERVA?, a designation started by Caves São João, the company innovates by using paper labels covered with natural cork on its wine bottles. In 1972, Caves São João bought the Quinta do Poço do Lobo, a wine estate with about 35 ha. The vineyard was totally replanted with carefully selected and delimited grape varieties. With the grapes grown there, the company produces its best wines and sparkling wines with the ?QUINTA DO POÇO DO LOBO? brand. Nowadays, after great investments in the vinification and quality control divisions, Caves São João is now ready to face future challenges with regard to production, always concerned with monitoring market trends and increasingly demanding and observant consumer preferences.

Distinctive Aspects

- Founded in 1920, we are the oldest active wine-producing company of Anadia.
- This company has always allied avant-gardism and tradition, joining the most modern wine-making technologies and quality control with traditional production methods and the use of paper wine-bottle labels covered with natural cork.
- The wine shop, that holds thousands of bottles, of wine of matchless quality, true rarities and national and international jewels from the work of wine, from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, is considered, for some time now, one of the best national companies, mainly due to the quantity and quality of its wines .

- The 100th anniversary commemorative project to put on the market a limited number of bottles, one bottle for each decade of existence, will culminate in 2020. This will enable oenophiles to start a collection that will be prized and valued by posterity.
- The high quality of our wines, sparkling wines and brandies.
