Editor’s note: the offer is over, we sold 50% of the stock and folks are happy with the offer! If you live in the US this post is for you. You probably know that our wines are finally available in the US. My proposal is this: go to http://www.flickingerwines.com/, search for Quevedo wines, put an […]


Fungus developing inside a broken bottle of Quevedo LBV 2003

Anyone has any idea of what is this on the photo? This is one of the most interesting things I learnt in the last weeks. I’ll explain where this comes from. We were preparing two of the four remaining pallets of LBV 2003 to send to Denmark when we found a purple stain on the […]


Wine in an one-glass bag; is this what modern consumer wants?

This is an easy photo, does not need much explanation. Last week, while we were exhibiting at the LIWF, in London, a friend came to my booth and showed me this bag. At the beginning I thought that this was a great idea, making the consumption of wine easier. People can easily carry this bag […]


Music-pairing: Rosé with Ruby?

Last week, we were watching Porto-Arsenal at a friend’s and Óscar brought the new Rosé Port for a preview tasting. Forgetting football, food and friends, the Rosé was the best part of the evening. And somewhere in the second glass of it, a music came to my mind as a perfect pair for the wine: […]


Rose Port: many consumers loved it but some still say this is not Port

It is time to ask for your opinion. Six months after we have first released our Rose Port and 3 months after we had run out of it, Rose Port is controversial. Many people think Rose Port was a great idea. But there are still some more conservative enthusiasts who defend Rose Port is not […]


Pairing Quevedo Rose Port and Nespresso Leggero

During the last week-end in the Porto & Douro Wine Show, which took place in Lisbon, there was something that caught my attention: Port and coffee parings! Great experience to have a sip of Nespresso Leggero coffee, followed by a sip of our Rose Port and then enjoy the tasting of this blend in your month! […]


How well is ageing our single varietal Port Wine?

Honestly I don’t really know how are the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, Tinto Cão and Tinta Roriz Ports aging. They are already in 250 liters barrels and after Christmas we will make the first tasting. Any volunteers to help us? Meanwhile, I asked  my friends to share with us what they expect from the […]


Is there more “Port Wine” in the world besides the one produced in the Douro?

During my trip to Hong Kong there was something that made me sad. Over the last four of five years I have been realizing how difficult is to build a brand. As said, only the first 100 years are difficult. And this is even more true for Port Wine. It took many years for Port […]


Our new brand of still wine: Oscar’s is born!

Dear readers of our blog, we have come up with a new idea. Something about wine, of course. We wanted to create a new wine, more informal and modern that the wines that we have at Quevedo. Something easy-drinking and fruity, probably not traditional and responsible enough to have it under a Quevedo brand. Its […]


Vintage Port 2007 General Tasting at Palácio da Bolsa, Porto

Yesterday Quevedo attended a tasting of Vintage Port 2007 for the Portuguese press and trade in the Palácio da Bolsa, in Porto. The tasting, organized  by the IVDP, by the Porto Wine Producers Association and by Essência do Vinho, got together around 50 producers only for tasting their Vintage Ports 2007. I had already tasted […]
