Quinta do Vallado

Quinta do Vallado, established in 1716, is one of the oldest and most famous “Quintas” in the Douro Valley. It once belonged to the legendary D.

For almost 200 years, Quinta do Vallado’s main activity was the production of Port wines that were sold to the Ferreira Port House (belonging to the Ferreira family).

  • Vallado Touriga Nacional Rose-Douro Portugal Douro 2013


    Earthy and savory on the nose with hints of pepper and prosciutto fat lurking under floral framed red berry fruit.

This really is quite tasty still, and... Read More
