Details

The Quinta do Infantado winery was established in 1816 by D. Pedro IV, the Portuguese crown heir, as a place where they could collect taxes, which were then paid in grapes or wine. This is the origin of the Quinta’s name: Infantado derives from Infante, the Portuguese for Prince. The Roseira family has owned Quinta do Infantado for over a century. Joao Roseira looks after the vineyards and oversees the winemaking and his sister-in-law Paula looks after the marketing of their wines. The Douro red comes from class A fruit (best in Douro) in the Cima Corga and is always a field blend of many local varieties. Ferments are long and slow and the wines end up drier than most with great concentration and minerality from the schist soils. Delicious unctuous red wine with body and depth.

Quinta do Infantado has been owned by the Roseira family for over 100 years and is known for being one of the few estates which bottles its production on the estate, rather than shipping the wine down the Douro River. The name 'Infantado' derives from 'Infante' (the Portuguese for Prince) and it was the Portuguese royal family who first built the winery in 1816, as a place where they could collect taxes in the form of grapes and wine. Joao Roseira now runs the winery. Located in Douro subregion of Cima Corgo, Pinhão is known for making the best Ports and dry wines, and has an altitude of 150 metres above sea level. All the Infantado vineyards have achieved the highest 'A' Grade status and the poor schist soils impart excellent concentration and flavour to the grapes.
