The quinta belongs to Rozès S.A. and is most often part of the Terras do Grifo. In 2003 SPR Vinhos, the mother company of Rozès purchased Quinta do Grifo from the Ribeiro da Silva family. In 2003 they made for the first time a single quinta vintage port from Quinta do Grifo. Since 2006 they have also made a vintage port under the name Terras do Grifo. In Terras do Grifo the grapes are not exclusively sourced from Quinta do Grifo, but also grapes from other vineyards can be used.
