Zoe Graham, part of the Churchill’s family dream team, said: “Port.Club is the ultimate Christmas gift for port lovers and the port curious.

“We know that port can be a confusing category, but the fun of port couldn’t be simpler, and our mission is to make people feel why what they’re drinking is so good. Different ports will be delivered direct to your door each quarter to try, drink and share.’

All Churchill’s ports are foot-trod, using only Grade-A grapes and natural yeast for extended fermentation. The result is a style of port well-matched to the evolving taste of today’s drinkers.

The Port Packs all come with one everyday port, one special occasion port, and one unique Club Port selected and blended by Churchill’s founder and head winemaker Johnny Graham exclusively for the club. Each shipment also comes with materials explaining what’s in the pack and an invitation to a virtual tasting.

In addition, members will have access to exclusive port experiences both online and in-person. From VIP access to Churchill’s intimate 4-bedroom Vineyard House in the Douro Valley to bespoke programs at Churchill’s award-winning Lodge in bustling Porto, Port.Club serves as a portal to the world of port for members and their friends. 

Churchill’s is one of the world’s foremost boutique producers of premium Port and Douro wines. Churchill’s is still founder-led, and the only independent British port shipper that is not part of a group. 

Churchill’s is a team of 40 people, producing just 50,000 handcrafted cases each year. Master port blender Johnny Graham still makes the wine nearly 40 years after starting the company at the age of 29 in 1981, making him the 5th generation of his family to make wine in the Douro. 

Johnny built his reputation solely on his own merits, however, apprenticing from age 20 with some of the great port makers of the Douro. Driven by passion, he started Churchill’s with the aim of making a distinct personal style of port and wine. Johnny co-founded Churchill’s with his two brothers and his wife Caroline Churchill, who also gave the brand its name.

In 2019, Johnny’s eldest daughter Zoe Graham returned from more than a decade abroad to join her father in running Churchill’s and lay the groundwork for Churchill’s to transition to a second-generation company. 

Zoe now heads Churchill’s sales and marketing, bringing a global mindset and female POV to the male-dominated world of port. Zoe is joined by her husband Ben Himowitz, one of the few Americans in the Portuguese wine world.
