2010 Quinta De Vesuvio Vintage Port
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 and 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 and very low in winter. It is very dry, with an average of only 400mm of rain falling each year.
The property produces two Vintage Ports: Quinta do Vesuvio, using the highest quality grapes sourced from the entire property, and Capela da Quinta do Vesuvio, a single vineyard Vintage Port, only made in the very best years. Both wines are produced in very small quantities.
Origin: Douro Valley, Portugal
