Lagarada at Quinta das Quartas

11 Oct 2018 in  Wine
Celebrating 100 years opens the door to thinking about new challenges. We refurbished our wine presses at Quinta das Quartas and brought the past to the present.  As a way of celebrating, we invited friends, clients and employees to our Quinta das Quartas, in the Douro (Lower Corgo), where we revived the ritual of barefoot grape stomping – the lagarada.
Take a look at the photo gallery of a day of celebration. Our celebration.
Poças, what a lagarada!

Launch of the new Poças wines

Jul 10, 2018

At the end of June, we hosted a lunch in our visitor centre for the launch of our new wines. In addition to showing our news, it was the chance to showcase our new premises!

We presented Branco da Ribeira 2017, our new top-of-the-range white wine. Produced from grapes grown on granitic soil, this wine praises the diversity of the Douro terroir and it is a tribute to the tenacity of the region. The wine will be available next Fall.

It was also the occasion to launch the wines Coroa d’Ouro Branco 2017, Coroa d’Ouro Tinto 2016, Vale de Cavalos Branco 2017, Vale de Cavalos Tinto 2016 and Porto Vintage 2016.

Poças Vintage 2016

Sep 15, 2018

The magazine Revista de Vinhos published an article about our Porto Vintage 2016 wines, the year with the largest Vintage declaration ever (63 brands). Our newly released Poças Vintage 2016 has received 18 points and was described as: “Dense and impenetrable ruby. Very fresh and springy nose, with elegant notes of blackberry, black plum, chocolate, coffee steam, tobacco leaf and spices. The mouth is silky, enveloping, tasty, with round but firm tannins, in an elegant profile, in which stands out the strength of the fruit and the spicy notes. A Vintage in a contemporary style, tamed and ready to drink, but which will continue to grow in the bottle over the coming decades.”
Our winemaker Jorge Pintão is seen as one of the oenologists who is leaving a mark in Port Wine.
ORIGIN: Portugal – Douro Demarcated Region
DESCRIPTION: A single harvest Port wine, produced only in years of exceptional quality. Aged in oak barrels, it is bottled between the second and third year after harvest. During aging in the bottle, it will gradually acquire the extraordinary style of a great wine of guard.
PAIRING: Ideal as a dessert or convivial wine, it pairs with very good quality cheeses, desserts and chocolates. Serve at room temperature (18ºC) after carefully decanted. It can be consumed straight away, or await a positive evolution in the bottle.
