1 February 2016 News

“This is perhaps the world’s most storied Port. It comes a small parcel in the 640-acre estate; its 5 acres are planted to a mix of the native Portuguese grapes Touriga Nacional, Sousão, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cão, among others. It has a track record for quality and long life that usually sets the standard in the Douro.”
