The Quevedo vineyards span over 250 acres throughout the regions of Cima-Corgo and Douro Superior. The soil of the region is comprised of schist stone which is as genuine as the wine it produces.
The site climate is exceptional due to, on the one hand, the singular geography and disposition of the vines and on the other hand, the surrounding Mediterranean and Atlantic climates are combined harmoniously thus creating a suitable climatic site for growing grape.
The soil of the region is comprised of schist stone which is as genuine as the wine it produces, divided in small terroirs with different physical and chemical qualities between them; thus each terroir has a unique and defined personality. This abundance of climatic influences and different soils define prolonged stages in the vine growth cycle. The growth will be complex and delicate, key to the potential quality of the wines in this area.
Quinta Vale D’Agodinho
Quinta Vale d’Agodinho is located next to the Douro River which embraces the 200 meters of the vineyards. Fifty luscious acres are full of the best varieties of the region: Touriga Franca, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Toriz and Tinto Cao. Between December and January the vines are pruned in preparation for the harsh and dry summer. Before autumn comes, on the middle of September, begins the apotheosis: the harvest.
Quinta da Trovisca
This vineyard is placed one and a half miles away from S. Joao da Pesqueira, where we grow 38 acres of robust red and white vines: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousao, Tinta Roriz, Viozinho, Gouveio and Rabigato. January is the optimal time for pruning, due to the local micro-climate while the harvest happens between the third and the forth week of September. Trovisca’s soil facilitates the production of structured and fruity-driven wine, with well-balanced acidity.
Quinta Sra do Rosario
High up in the hill, 650 meters above the sea level and surrounding Quevedo’s winery, is located the oldest quinta planted 45 years ago. Because of its locations, the wines of this field are always the last to be pruned and harvested. Therefore from Quinta da Senhora do Rosario we obtain red fruity, concentrated and fresh wines.
