The 1940's - where it all began. A bold new concept, for Portugal and for the world.

In 1942, the Portuguese company Sogrape and its founder Fernando Van Zeller Guedes, launched one of the world’s most innovative wines. Its striking image, unique flavour and curious bottle have brought it fame worldwide. The unique and iconic bottle (inspired by the flasks used by soldiers in the First World War) has contributed to the wine’s enormous success.

Mateus first became popular in the United Kingdom and enormously successful in the USA. In the 1950s, it became a truly global brand. By the late 1970s, Sogrape was selling in around 120 countries; Mateus was inclusively the most requested drink during the Summit of the Organization of African Unity, held in Lagos, Nigeria.
