Founded in London in 1737 by William Offley, initially as wine merchants, Offley was soon exporting wines and later began to produce its own Porto Wine. The brand gained international recognition as a creator of premium quality wines. Over the years, Offley has invested in the production of its wines, installed and replanted landmark vineyards, built and maintained its fantastic cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia and expanded the brand’s distribution.
