Sandeman has one of the more recognizable labels in the Porto wine industry. The black-cloaked Sandeman Don was created in 1928. However the history of this internationally renowned Porto wine producer dates back much further than the 1920s. The Porto shipper was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a Scotsman from Perth. Initially the business focused on sherry but Mr. Sandeman quickly added Port to the portfolio and today Sandeman also produces a brandy.
