Wiese & Krohn's estate Quinta do Retiro Novo is located in Sarzedinho, a very small village in the Rio Torto valley. In this area the nature of the soil where the vines are growing, the altitude, the locality, the (small) productiveness and the slope of the vineyards are particularly favorable to the production of quality Ports. Quality is reinforced by the grape varieties which have been planted in the Quinta, as well as by the age of the vines, their method of training and the density of plantation, among other factors. All these items are officially converted into points, the sum of which determines the final classification of the property. In Quinta do Retiro Novo this sum exceeds 1200 points, which makes it belong to the restricted group of "class A" properties. The Quinta has a vinification plant for the production of Port (and also Douro Wine) based on its own grapes and those our Company buys to the neighbouring producers. During vinification a great importance is attached to the conjunction of modern technology with traditional wine making methods. So for instance we still use old lagares (open granite tanks about 75 cm high) to make the best Ports through the treading of the grapes by human foot without any mechanical crushing. But we also use modern stainless steel lagares where sophisticated robots simulate the human treading of the grapes. Read less

Tasting Notes:

This Port wine comes from the Douro region of Portugal. Tasting warm, full of hearty fruits like raisins, this Port is perfect for melon, nuts like almonds, or foie gras--classic Port accompaniments.
