The Winery

Quinta do Vale Meão

Quinta do Vale Meão

In 1877 D. Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, already owner of the largest agricultural heritage of the Douro, bought in a public auction 300 hectares of virgin land to the VN chamber of Foz Côa. Her dream was to build from scratch a model exploration, materializing in her all the vast experience accumulated throughout her life as a businesswoman from Douro.

In the eastern part of the Douro, near the Spanish border, we find Quinta do Vale Meão, birthplace of Barca Velha, the most famous and highly acclaimed Douro. The quinta is owned by Francisco Javier de Olazabal, the great-great-grandson of Dona Antonia Ferreira who bought the quinta in 1877. The former director of the Ferreira port house started making wine from his son, oenologist Xito (Francisco) Olazabal in 1998 this exceptional terroir. Their first wine, Meao 1999, was immediately named the best Portuguese wine of 1999. It is the most famous quinta in Portugal and is also part of the famous Douro Boys. All wines that they make now guarantee an authentic experience of the Douro wines, naturally made from the typical Portuguese grape varieties from the Douro region. Quinta do Vale Meão belongs to the top of Portugal and you can taste why it is!

The Quinta do Vale do Meão is the flagship of one of Portugal's best wineries. The wine is a blend of authentic Portuguese grapes 58% Touriga Nacional, 35% Touriga Franca, 5% Tinta Barroca and 2% Tinta Roriz which have been used in French barriques for 18 months (80% new, used for the 2nd time). The grapes come from vines 45-50 years old. This is a wine that is wonderfully balanced and extremely elegant. Nothing is too much or too overwhelming and in the Wine-Advocate it also speaks about the "Wow moment" at the Quinta do Vale do Meão. This wine is simply irresistible. The wine has a complex nose with many aromatic nuances without overlaps with a different odor. We smell red fruit, leather, espresso, a hint of tobacco and spices in the nose. The wine is medium to full bodied with an excellent (read: non-dominant) integration of wood. Now every comparison with this wine is a bit wrong, but it is best to compare it with a good, elegant Burgundian who can also combine freshness and elegance. The Meao was in the Winespectator Top 100 of the world's best wines in the top 3!

Vinha Cantina 2017 ist ein rebsortenreiner Baga. Ein Nachbar des Weingutes CARM und eines der Weingüter die sich zu den Douro boys zusammengeschlossen haben! Vom nordöstlichen Teil des Douro, dem Douro Superior kommt dieser sehr sehr feine Rote.Ein neuer Wein der Familie Olazabal ist dieser reinsortige Touriga. Wo doch am meisten auf Alluvium, dem alten Schwemmboden des Douro, Schiefer und auf Granit hier die Weinberge stehen, gibt es ein paar Parzellen unter denen ausschliesslich der Granit die Grundlage bildet, mit einem Ertrag unter 2500 l/ha..Es findet keine Verwendung von Kunstdünger statt, die Rebstöcke müssen "harte Arbeit" verrichten, das Ergebis ist wie zu erwarten sensationell....Die blumig feine ( Nelken ), sehr vielfältig im Aroma daherkommende Baga wächst auf einem 2 Hektar Weinberg direkt neben der Quinta, eine Einzellage namens Vinha dos Novos.Hierher kommt der Monte Meao, ein voller Roter mit der ganzen Ausdruckskraft dieses Terroir und der Rebsorte. Spannend diesen Baga auf Granit 15-25 Jahre lagerfähig!Önologe ist Francisco Olazabal, 12%
