WELCOME TO QUINTA DO RONCÃO

Family winery located in the heart of Douro Region

“From the air, the valleys or the river bed, all that we can see is the work of man”

António Barreto, in Douro

LEARN A BIT ABOUT US

Our 23 ha of land are located in Poiares - Peso da Régua, heart of the Douro Region. We grow vines and olive trees under Integrated Farming, which aims to deliver a more sustainable agriculture. We also grow some fruit trees along our roads, so when you come to visit us there is always some fruit to taste throughout the year!
The tradition of winemaking has been in our family for generations. Our winery was established in 1923 and rebuild for modern winemaking in 2001, keeping the gravity-flow design and the traditional style “lagares”, which are open fermenters made of schist and granite.
Producing wine from our grapes with all the tradition from old days (foot treading) and all the science and technology developed in the last decades makes our wines quite unique and special. Come and try it yourself!

 

TERROIR

The perfect weather conditions within the Douro Valley, with hot summers and very cold winters; the location of our vineyards, about 5 km to the Douro River with an elevation of 500-600 meters, facing east and south; the schist-based soil in rain fed conditions; the age of our vines (between 30 and more than 100 years old) as well as the Portuguese varieties careful selected throughout the decades – Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca for the reds, and Rabigato, Fernão Pires and Malvasia Fina for the whites - make up the terroir of Quinta do Roncão.

 

WINEMAKING

Our winery was built in 1923 onto a hillside in three big terraces, which allows the natural course of gravity to assist on the flow of fruit and wine down through the cellar, avoiding the use of pumps. Our first harvest after reconstruction was 2001.
The grapes are hand harvested and transported to the winery (just a few meters away) in boxes of 30 kg. Then, at the cellar, all the magic happens: the grapes are transformed into juice and fermented to wine.
Producing wine from our grapes with all the tradition from old days (foot treading!) and all the science and technology developed in the last decades makes our wines quite unique and special.

 

WINES

Enjoy life with the wines of Quinta do Roncão

QUINTA DO RONCÃO WHITE 

Made with the Portuguese varieties Malvasia Fina, Rabigato and Fernão Pires.

The grapes are processed through the direct pressing of the whole grape in pneumatic press. The fementation occurs in a controlled temperature of 16-18ºC between 10 to 14 days.

The wine has a light yellow color with strong varietal aroma. Fresh and fruity mouth, without losing the harmony and body, characteristic of the Douro Region.

 

QUINTA DO RONCÃO RED RESERVE 2013

Made from the Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca varieties.

The fermentation of our red wines takes place in “lagares” of granite and schist with traditional foot trading and prolonged maceration. After the alcoholic fermentation the wine is pressed and transferred by gravity to stainless steel vats where malolactic fermentation takes place.

Deep red color, with an elegant aroma of red fruits and plum. In the mouth the fruit is very present with soft tannins and persistent end.

 

THE OLIVE OIL

Our olive oil is the result of a blend between fruit from the old olive trees located along the roads of the vineyards and our olive grove.
The olive grove was planted in the late 90s with a single variety - Cobrançosa, grown under rain fed conditions.
We hand harvest the olives between November and January and the olive oil is produced in the region in a traditional mill, resulting in a mature fruity aroma, almond and spicy notes, and long persistence.
