ABOUT QUEVEDO PORT WINE
Quevedo is one of a new generation of family wineries based in the Douro. For many years, these families grew grapes and made Port wine for merchants based in Vila Nova de Gaia. When Portugal joined the EU in 1986, new legislation permitted wineries in the Douro to export their wines directly. As a result, the family brand “Quevedo” was born.
The Quevedo family cultivates 100 ha of vineyards across six properties in the Douro sub-regions of Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The diversity of these vineyards provides grapes of varying aromas and flavors that are incorporated into the final product.
Quevedo also produces a very limited quantity of exceptional organic olive oil from ancestral groves in Valongo dos Azeites.
Quinta do Romeu is an organic producer in a remote corner of the Douro region, a wild ecosystem near the Spanish border. Grape vines, olive trees, and cork forests are cultivated on an annual cycle that provides sustainable employment to this isolated community throughout the year. It is the original biodynamic concept, long before the term was invented. The fourth and fifth generation of the family currently run the estate, largely as designed by the founder over 140 years ago.
The founders of 1912 Winemakers, António Monteiro and Edmar Monteiro, are brothers from a prominent family in the Douro region. From a young age both helped their father around the family property, “Quinta de São Bernardo”, dating from 1912. The centennial strains from these vines, alongside with generations of effort, result in the high quality wines produced by the company today. A second property, “Quinta da Água”, was later acquired in order to expand wine production, always taking into account the same quality standards. This company was born from a mixture of passion and care for traditions.
