Since 1999 Altano has been the flagship brand for the table wines produced by Symington Family Estates, famous for producing Port and with over a century’s expertise of winemaking in the Douro Valley. This is a blend of Aglianico, Moscatel galego and Viosinho made in stainless steel and under strict temperature control to preserve the freshness of the fruit in the heat of the Douro.
