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.

4 /5

Um vinho profundamente colorido, com um ataque poderoso, cheio de intensidade onde facilmente se encontram notas frutadas frescas. Está muito bem estruturado, por isso acreditamos que envelhecerá lindamente.

4 /5

In the easternmost part of the Douro, close to the Spanish border, we find Quinta do Vale Meão in the Douro Superior. This very famous quinta is the birthplace of Barca Velha, the best known and highly praised Portuguese wine. The quinta is owned by Francisco Javier de Olazabal, the great-great-grandson of Dona Antonia. The former director of the Porthuis Ferreira (until 1999) started producing wine from these exceptional vines with his son, oenologist Francisco de Olazabal y Almeida. and terroir. In 2000 they came on the market with a Vintage Port for the first time. Their Finest Ruby Reserve is of exceptionally high quality. Quinta do Vale Meão belongs to the top of Portugal and you can taste why it is!

The grape varieties used for this Finest Reserve Port are mainly Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and the Tinta Amarela. This port has aged at least 4 years in large oak barrels of at least 20,000 liters. The style of this port is fruity, sweet. On the nose the port has red berries, dried fruit (cranberries) and a pepper. The color is deep dark red and in the mouth you can taste berries, cherries, chocolate and Aceto Balsamic vinegar.

Great as an aperitif, and as an accompaniment to old hard cheese or, for example, a chocolate cake with cherries.

Storage advice: Keep upright after opening, preferably in a cool dark place for 8-10 days.

Serve at 12-16 º C
