Symington Family Estates
Altano is a brand name owned by the Symington family used for table wines from their own properties. Altano Reserva comes from a single quinta, Quinta do Ataíde, located in the beautiful Vilariça Valley. It is the largest of three properties owned by the Symington family in this valley.
The vineyard is 82 hectares (203 acres) and has one of the largest single planting of Touriga Nacional in the Douro. The vineyard was planted in the late 1970s/early 1980s so is now fully mature. The wine is made by Charles Symington and Pedro Correia.
