About Winery and Wines
Quinta do Vallado, established in 1716, is one of the oldest and most famous estates in the Douro Valley.
It is located on the banks of the Corgo River, a tributary of the Douro River, right next to its mouth and close to the town of Peso da Régua.
It belonged to the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira and remains to this day in the hands of her descendants.
Two thirds of the vineyards are planted in terraces with a single row of vines, pruned according to the double cordon system.
The dominant varieties are, in reds, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Barroca, Tinta Amarela and Sousão, and in t whites, Viosinho, Rabigato, Moscatel, Verdelho (Gouveio) and Arinto.
Reds: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Barroca, Tinta Amarela and Sousão.
Whites: Viosinho, Rabigato, Moscatel, Verdelho (Gouveio) and Arinto
The old vines follow the ground lines and are planted in continuous rows distanced 1.2 m, with 1m between each plant.
They consist of a field blend of more than 40 varieties, the predominant ones being Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Barroca and Touriga Franca.
In 2009 Quinta do Vallado decided to increase its area of vineyards, having chosen the Upper Douro as the most favorable location to do so. Quinta do Orgal, located in Castelo Melhor - Vila Nova de Foz Côa was acquired and since then more than 30 acres of organic vineyards have been planted.
