ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Quinta do Romeu Douro Tinto Reserva

Quinta do Romeu Douro Tinto Reserva is the estate’s top red wine coming from all organic and handpicked grapes (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, and Sausão). All grapes came into the cellar for manual selection and sorting, as the stalks were then completely removed and followed by a foot crushing in old granite lagares, with slow and natural yeast fermentation with all the grapes starting separately. After fermentation was complete, a bit of continued maceration took place to add extra color and flavor complexities. The first blending occurs when the wine is aged for a year in new and used Austrian oak barrels, and then a final blend before bottling this intense yet remarkably elegant red. Floral aromatics from the Touriga Nacional shine through first and foremost, with orange blossom and violets, followed by wild strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, spice, and toast. A silky mouth feel is fully structured with gripping tannins, gorgeous fruit, fresh acidity, and lovely floral components.

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!
