The Story of Dows Port 1798 -1998

Richard Mayson

Richard Mayson was asked by the Symington family, owners of Dow's Port, to write this commemorative work for the company's bicentenary in 1998. Illustrated throughout, it traces the history of one distinguished Port shipper through a number of different owners and through good times and bad. Richard sets the family history in its Portuguese and world-wide context tracing the evolution of Port wine over 200 years.
