Real Companhia Velha is the oldest and most emblematic wine company in Portugal, having celebrated 258 years of existence and uninterrupted activity in the service of Port Wine. It was founded on the 10th of September 1756 by Royal Charter of King D. José I, under the auspices of his Prime Minister, Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, the Count of Oeiras and Marquis of Pombal. Formed by the most important farmers from the Douro Valley, and significant figures of the city of Porto, the company was entrusted with the task of "sustaining the cultivation of the vines, conserving their natural production and purity, towards a benefit of Agriculture, Trade and Public Health". At some of the best Quintas in the Douro, RCV has been able to preserve and honor the tradition while investing in the future, with a constant modernization and experimentation at the vineyards.

The brand name Royal Oporto had its first appearance in the Portuguese market in 1933, but was later launched in the international market in 1995, with a purpose to comercialize Port Wine in foreign countries.
