In 1928, Sandeman requested George Brown Massiot some drawings for advertising posters and then the iconic and internationally recognized silhouette of Sandeman Don was born.

Dressed as a Spanish gentleman of Jerez, with the mantle of the Portuguese university students and a wide-brimmed hat, Don stands out as dramatic shadowy figure, holding a glass of a ruby coloured Port wine.

In Detail

Majestically situated opposite the historic centre of Porto, in a 1811 granite building overlooking the Douro River, the House of Sandeman invites you to an experience full of mystery and sensuality, in a traditional yet cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Sandeman Museum takes you 1790 in London, when George Sandeman, a Scottish young man, decided to market Port wines of the North of Portugal and Jerez wines, of the South of Spain. An impressive collection of paintings, photographs, ceramics, old bottles and other memorable items will tell you a fascinating history through an interesting exhibition: Sandeman – the Art of a Brand.

"Tour muito interessante. Guia simpática. Vinhos deliciosos"

Reviewed by Anton Alexander, Malaysia, 26.03.2016

The guide from Sandeman really made the tour a very interesting and fun one. Cracking his jokes and being knowledgeable at the same time. I am very pleased with the Sandeman tour which I booked from Wine Tourism in Portugal.
