William Offley founded the eponymous wine merchant in London in 1737, and soon began importing and bottling Port to the UK. By 1787, Offley was described as ‘one of the most considerable English houses at Porto.’ The house became famous for its association with Joseph James Forrester, later the Baron of Forrester, who came to Oporto in 1831 to join his uncle, James Forrester, who was a partner in what was then Offley, Forrester and Webber.

More recently, under Sogrape’s ownership, Offley has thrived. Investment in the vineyards and careful selection has ensured quality has improved and this historic producers has once again moved it up the ranks of Port houses.

Offley Ruby Port is a blend of Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão and Touriga Franca. The wine has an attractive red-ruby hue and lively aromas reminiscent of ripe strawberries, blackberries and cherries. Some more complex spicy notes arise from its time spent ageing in oak. On the palate, it has a fine balance between sweetness and mature tannins. Its youthful elegance and liveliness make it ideal for those who enjoy young and accessible Port wines.
