Every month the Museum of the Oldest Appellation in the World highlights one of the many objects that are part of the collection shown in our permanent exhibition. Come and discover the object of the month and find out more about our history.

“Companhia Geral das Vinhas do Alto Douro is, with no exaggeration, the principal base of the trade in this city, being one of the greatest and most fruitful branches that promotes it; and the grand spirit that stimulates it, both in industry and in the general interests.”

Agostinho Rebelo da Costa, 1789

 

The price list used by the Company in 1959, is one of several objects that present the brand’s evolution over time. Price lists, together with checks, printing plates and historic bottles, are some of the objects that are displayed in the seventh area of the permanent exhibition. Which allow the contextualization of the Real Companhia Velha’s commercial evolution, side by side with the important role that this company played in the region and in the city of Porto.
