Quinta da Devesa carries a secular history. In 1844, the well-known Baron Forrester, included this property in what was the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region. But the most important history of this property began last century, in 1941, when the Fortunato family acquired the Quinta, thus beginning a new phase of greater investment in wine production, with a special focus on Port Wines. Later there are also references to DOC Douro wines, which has strengthened its presence in the national and international wine market. Quinta da Devesa remains today an independent family company, oriented to the future, with presence in several international markets. The investment made in recent years has brought greater recognition by wine lovers and specialized critics. The result of all this is also visible through the huge palate of national and international awards achieved to date.

Winemaking

The Port Wines from Quinta da Devesa are produced exclusively from batches vinified and aged on the property. Since 1941, the crops considered of superior quality by the family’s winemakers, were stored and aged in wooden casks. These extraordinary wines are now used to produce the Quinta da Devesa Port Wines. Located in the sub-region Baixo Corgo, 10 kms from Peso da Régua, is situated on a promontory that dominates the inflow of the Rivers Douro and Corgo and where you can enjoy a majestic panorama that covers the valleys of those rivers and mountains in the region. Its 34 hectares, planted with the grape varieties recommended for the region, extend from an elevation of 60m to 500m, partly facing south, receiving an excellent exposure to the sun, and partly facing north, from where it receives the coolest prevailing winds. This diversity of sun and wind exposure causes varying levels of maturation and development that allow for the timing of harvests under optimal conditions.Since 1941, the vintages considered of superior quality by the family’s oenologists have been stored and aged in wooden casks. These extraordinary wines are now used to produce the Quinta da Devesa Port Wines.This Port resulted from lots of wines stored at Quinta da Devesa, made with the noble varieties used in the demarcated Douro region and aged in wooden casks in the warehouses of the Quinta.

Tasting notes

Aromas of praline and small medicinal notes, hints of toffee, dried apricot and a candied caramelised walnut flavour. Full-bodied and well balanced, the finish presents a complex mix of flavours and concentration, with a long and full-bodied finish.
