Notes: This estate makes exceptionally balanced wines, amongst the finest in the entire region.
Exquisite floral bouquet with a scent of roses rising from the glass as well as exceptionally fresh & pure red fruit notes. There is also a lovely fragrance of Mediterranean vegetation which is often present in the wines from Vesuvio. Pure seduction on the palate with expressive, yet wonderfully rounded fruit — the understated tannins underpinning the beautifully crafted structure. Elegant & polished, a remarkable wine from this historic property.

Producer Info: Founded by the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, Quinta do Vesuvio is one of the great Douro estates. It has a total area of 326 hectares, of which 133 hectares are planted with vines. The rest has been conserved in its natural state. The property has great variations in altitude, from 130m at the riverside to 530m at the top of the ridge. It has vineyards that face north, south, east & west, providing a remarkable range of conditions. Being so far inland, only 30k from Spain, the Quinta experiences climatic extremes, reaching very high temperatures in summer & very low in winter. It is very dry, with an average of only 400mm of rain falling each year.
Dona Antónia bottled the first known single estate wine in the Douro in 1868. When the Symington family acquired the property in 1989, they decided to resurrect Vesuvio as a single estate, rather than amalgamating its grapes under a port brand like most Quintas. Since then, their sole objective has been to create outstanding wines, both Vintage Ports & Douro DOC wines, using only the very best grapes on the property.
The 19th century winery is one of the last places on earth where all the grapes are still trodden by human feet.
