Vallegre is the fusion of two wineyards named "Valle Longo" and "Vista Alegre" in the Portuguese region of Douro. The property itself is owned by a family in its 5th generation by now.
Despite the old family tradition the winery Vallegre seems to be a modern, dynamic enterprise, aiming to produce Port wines and Douro DOC table wines of the highest quality.
The cellar formerly known as Quinta da Vista Alegre surrounds 55 hectares of wineyards on the right bank of the river Douro. There you can mainly find the grape varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Barroca, Sousao and Tinto Cao, growing on old vines of up to 80 years of age.
The Quinta de Valle Longo on the contrary has rather humble 10 hectares of land and lies on the river delta between the river Douro and the Tedo. This is the home of first-class grapes of the varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz.
