QUINTA DA ROMANEIRA
Romaneira is one of the great historic Quintas of the Douro Valley in Northern Portugal, on a spectacularly beautiful site overlooking the Douro river facing south, its rocky soil lending its particular character to the wines. Recently a new and exciting chapter has been added to Romaneira’s long and illustrious story, with the emergence of Romaneira as a key player in the “Douro Revolution”: the discovery that our ancient local grape varieties can be used to make not only excellent Port wines, but increasingly also outstanding unfortified wines that are finding their place among the great wines of the world, while being an expression of our unique terroir.
“It’s the kind of light, elegant wine that, makes the powerfully extracted Douro reds seem heavy and ponderous by comparison. It’s stemmy and gamey…and more vibrant.” – Joshua Greene, April 2014
