Pereira D'Oliveiras "Not just the biggest collection of old wine in Madeira, but in the world of wine, and by a long way"

"Not just the biggest collection of old wine in Madeira, but in the world of wine, and by a long way" (Julio Fernandes, winemaker at Justino's.)


Founded in 1850, Pereira D'Oliveiras is the most traditional of houses, and their wines are the most concentrated and earthy of Madeiras, yet brilliantly fresh and persistent. Nowadays, it is run by
executive director Luis D'Oliveira, one of 3 brothers in the partnership and direct descendant of founder, João Pereira D'Oliveira. Fellow 5th generation family member Anibal D'Oliveira (along with
his son, Felipe) is the winemaker.


PdO have recently acquired Barros i Souza, whose brands will be kept in the market. They had previously taken over 5 exporter-producers whose businesses were failing, and whose stocks have
augmented Pereira D'Oliveiras' rich holdings of aged wine. PdO's aim is to oppose the international conglomerate tendency and to maintain a presence of Portuguese family ownership as the face of
Madeira.
