Port specialists the Symington family have moved into commercial red wine production. The family have always made small quantities of Douro wine for personal consumption. However in 1999 they decided to make a wine for wider distribution. A winery was upgraded and the wine from the 1999 vintage was aged for a year and bottled at the end of 2000. The result is the Altano 1999 which is going on sale in the UK at £5.49, and is being sold by Waitrose and a number of other wine merchants. {{DRINKS }}
