The house was founded 1881 by the British wine merchant Thomas Page Hutcheson and Alexander Davidson Taylor (a scion of the Taylor’s Port family). Thomas Hutcheson retired in 1920 and new partner became Augustus G. Bouttwood. 1925 Taylor died and Bouttwood sold the House in 1927 to the Barros family. In1996 the equally old Feuerheerd Bros was merged with Hutcheson to became Hutcheson Feuerheerd Associates. In 2006 when Sogevinus bought Barros, these companies were included.
