Food Pairings for Quinta Do Vesuvio Port Blend Porto Vintage
Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley, and offered exclusively as a single Quinta Vintage Port. In 1989, Quinta do Vesuvio was purchased by the Symington family whose involvement in the production and shipping of Port began more than a century ago. Vesuvio is now ranked as one of the top-tier Vintage Port producers. Over the last decade, Quinta do Vesuvio has amassed an impressive number of awards at international tasting competitions around the world. The 1989 vintage is a garnet colour with lovely mature fruit aromas. It has a remarkably balanced palate of ripe fruit and soft tannins. Its sumptuous lingering finish is smooth and elegant. Although it is often stated that Vintage Port’s perfect food pairing is Stilton cheese, Quinta do Vesuvio 1989 Vintage Port is also delicious on its own or when enjoyed with any type of creamy cheese, such as Camembert or Brie.
