Founded in 1920 by the brothers José, Manuel and Albano Costa, the Caves São João is a family business that was originally dedicated to the marketing of fine Douro wines and liqueurs. It is today, the oldest family-run wine company still operating in the municipality of Anadia.
In the 30s with the prohibition of the elaboration of Port wines outside Vila Nova de Gaia, the company starts to produce and commercialize Bairrada table wines. At the same time, it started the production of natural sparkling wines following the "champagne" method. At this stage, it is important to stress role played by the French aenologist Mr. Gaston Mainousson.
