PORTUGAL - DOURO VALLEY - PINHAO

Quinta de La Rosa

Quinta de La Rosa is a Port Wine producing estate, in a delightful location, in Northern Portugal

Quinta de La Rosa consists of 135 acres of A grade vineyards in the heart of the upper Douro, recently classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Dona Clara Suite - Quinta de La Rosa

The property is owned by the Bergqvist family, formerly trading under the family name of Feuerheerd Bros, who have been shipping Port Wine since 1815.
In 1988 Tim Bergqvist, and his daughter Sophia, decided to re-launch Quinta de La Rosa as an independent estate.  They took advantage of the change in Port Wine regulations which enables producers to sell Port direct from their estates and not through the established houses based at Vila Nova de Gaia, near Oporto.

Nowadays, all aspects of production are done on site: growing, harvesting, treading and vinifying followed by maturation, blending and bottling.
