Rita Marta, a member of the Martha family (https://marthasgroup.com), gives a tour of their old cellars in the Douro Valley.

The walls of the main house date back to 1727, although they have been reconstructed over time. The family has been in the grape-growing business since then, but only started making wine in the early 19th century. They initially sold their grapes and later began selling their own bottled wine in 1970.

The family primarily focuses on producing Tawny ports, which are traditionally more popular among Portuguese families. They also have French casks from Bordeaux that they use to age their ports and spirits.

The estate is located in a narrow part of the Douro Valley and has olive trees strategically placed on the mountains to help with water absorption.

The Martha family is currently in the fifth generation of running the business, which produces port wines, Douro wines, and spirits.
