History & Geography
The company was established in 1918 by the hand of Manoel Poças Júnior and his uncle . During the first years the mission of the company was to sell wine spirit dedicated to Port Wine production but years later Poças started to export Port Wine. The Company’s head office is located in Vila Nova de Gaia (Porto) but it is in the Douro Demarcated Region where Poças’ 3 Estates are (Quinta das Quartas, Quinta de Santa Bárbara and Quinta de Vale de Cavalos), and where all of the grapes come from. Overtime Manoel Poças Júnior passed on his knowledge and passion for wine to his children and grandchildren. Nowadays Poças lies in the hands of the 3rd and 4th generation , being one of the very few Port Wine company that was born Portuguese and still belongs to the same Portuguese family The Old Tawny Ports have built Poças’ reputation but DOC Douro wines have been proving their own quality over the last 30 years.
