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.
Since 2005, Quinta do Vallado can host guests in its renowned Wine Hotel.
Guests are presented with the opportunity to stay at our Manor House, once belonging to Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, built in 1733 and recently refurbished. In addition, a new building was concluded in 2012. This new wing, built mainly out of slate, the predominant material in the region's soil, was designed by Arq. Francisco Vieira de Campos.
As a whole, Quinta do Vallado offers 13 rooms, 5 in the Manor House and 8 in the New Wing. All rooms and suites are equipped with A/C, TV and Wi-Fi access.
The estate has a stunning swimming pool and offers multiple activities such as walks, bicycle rides, boat trips, fishing sessions, picnics, cooking classes and wine tastings. We also provide free parking and transfer service, to and from the airport.
