Although Churchill's is considered a baby of the Port trade both in scale and age having only been founded in 1981 it has its roots deeply imbedded into quality Port history. Indeed Johnny Graham ' s family used to own the famous Graham's Port until it was sold in 1970. He and his wife Caroline (maiden name Churchill) created the company when Johnny left a job at Taylor's where he had been in the winemaking team having spent the years before that working for Cockburns. When asked how he would explain the Churchill's style Johnny draws from his drinking experiences when he describes it as having the finesse and elegance of Grahams the dryness and acidity of Cockburns and the structure and balance of Taylor's. These attributes go to making the wonderful and and unique style of Churchill's. This style has been reinforced since 1999 with the purchase of two grade A properties Quinta da Gricha and Quinta da Rio which bring further terrior and depth to the blends. The scale of Churchill's allows Johnny and his team to produce really exciting hand crafted traditional wines using the methods that many houses are now unable due to their time-consuming nature.
