Meet Rachel Farah
After working for a traditional wine importer selling wines from across the globe to restaurants, I set out on my own to do it differently.
Inspired by my family's trading roots, I aim to modernize trading by bringing you as close as possible to the people, places and stories behind your imports while supporting producers who are moving the needle.
Whether you are enjoying Port from your living room or planning a trip to Portugal, I invite you along for the adventure! - Rachel Farah
The story of the original Farah
My grandmother, Farah, was born in Hong Kong to a family of traveling Jewish Iraqi traders, importing and selling goods across the Middle East and Asia, tracing their roots to the Sephardic diaspora from Portugal.
After making her final immigration to San Francisco in the 1930s, Farah's dinner table was always surrounded with food, drink and stories from all of the places her family had traveled through.
This blending of cultures and nostalgic connection to places and people through food and wine is at the heart of Farah Trading Co.
