ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Quinta do Romeu Douro Branco Reserva

Quinta do Romeu Douro Branco Reserva is the estate’s only white wine, made from a field blend of local white varietals, predominately Gouveio Real, Rabigato, Voisinho, and Arinto. The grapes are hand-harvested and are placed into stainless steel tanks and 500-liter Austrian oak barrels, with native yeasts for a co-fermentation. No malolactic is carried out, and the wine ages in these two vessels for 8 months with regular stirring of the lees, before being bottled. The finished wine has incredible intensity and complexity, with ripe tree fruit character and minerality on the nose, and a palate of expressive fruit and fresh persistence. This white is ideal for weighty white fish, firm sheep cheeses, and fried potatoes.

About Quinta do Romeu

In 1874, Clemente Guimarães Menéres had the vision for his family to produce some of Portugal’s greatest wines and olive oil and founded this family business. Now, the family resides in the district of Bragança (in the northeast side of Portugal) and has a beautiful estate that sits in the far northeast of the Douro wine region. A steadfast commitment to the harmony of their project is truly spectacular, as they seek a balance between their crops, the environment, their people, and their economy. An awareness of the feet on the ground and the divine in heaven guides their practices. Since 1997, their entire production is certified organic and they practice many biodynamic philosophies on about 25 hectares of grapes and 120 hectares of olives. Naturally, they see the benefits of zero additives to the wine and minimal additions of sulfur and avoid all international varieties to focus only on the local indigenous grapes (where Touriga Nacional in this area shows an intense floral component from the unique shale soils). Romeu is making some of the cleanest and most beautiful dry reds that we have found throughout Portugal!
