Signing a contract when getting a double-magnum(3L) or imperial(6L) of Quinta Vale D’Agodinho 2008 Vintage Port

Quinta Vale d'Agodinho 2008 Vintage Port

For the first time in Quevedo’s history, we bottled double-magnums (3L) and imperials (6L) of a Vintage Port. The chosen Port Wine for this exclusive limited edition (20 units each) was our 2008 Quinta Vale d’Agodinho Vintage Port as this is also the first Single Quinta Vintage Port we release. All the process has been hand-made: bottled and corked by my university friends when they came for the harvest in the second week-end of October; labeled two days ago just in time for the first export of 4 units; and, of course, handcrafted waxing.

Apart from the size of the bottles, there is something cool that I would like to show you. It’s about the back-label, as it’s very unusual. Last September 27th, when Julian Wiseman visited our winery, together with other Port fellows, he suggested me to put a kind of contract in the back-label. Take a look and let me know what you think! What does this contract make you feel? Does it change anything in your wish of having one of these bottles?

    Hi Oscar. Great initiative. Since my magnum has no backlabel yet, I think you should give me one of these ;)

      We’ve to put a back label on that magnum and make it official. In the end, there are only 150 magnums and that is the first in the Netherlands!

    Great initiative, Oscar (and Julian for the idea of course)!

    By the way, you know you are always invited to come over to us and enjoy any bottle of port that we have with us!
