Sogrape is very concerned with the already observed and likely increasing climate change. We are monitoring climate with a network of automated weather stations in all the regions where we produce wine, adapting our production systems, and addressing the mains sources of carbon emissions to drive mitigation actions to significantly reduce our greenhouse gases footprint. Along with our Global Sustainability Approach, it made perfect sense for us to join IWCA, contributing to its mission and to achieve greater resilience in the wine sector.
Founded in 1942 by Fernando Van Zeller Guedes, Sogrape was born to demonstrate the quality of Portuguese wines to the world. From a single winery in the Douro Valley focused on the production of Mateus Rose, this family company has become global, with presence in more than 120 markets, owning 1,600 hectares of vineyards worldwide. Moved by the purpose of bringing Friendship and Happiness to everyone it touches through its wonderful wines, Sogrape aims to be a catalyst for positive societal change, respecting the limits of the planet in the construction of a more sustainable and inclusive future.
