A port wine with huge potential, a great pleasure for special moments and a perfect gift for port wine lovers.
Excellent with blue cheese (Roquefort or Stilton), good chocolate.

Color: Dark and opaque ruby ​​red

Aroma: Elegant but intense aromas of boysenberries, black pepper, cherries and a hint of sandalwood unfold with great intensity and purity.

Palate: In the typical dry style of Quevedo, the wine presents itself with a spicy note at the beginning on the palate. High-quality tannins provide structure, followed by a round, fruity taste experience full of ripe dark plums and violets. The finish is long and intense, characterized by spices and red fruits.


The Quevedo Port Wine Vintage 2020 was made without aging in oak barrels and contains only 81 grams of residual sugar.

Bottled in June 2022, it shows improved integration of its components after about a year in the bottle.

With aeration, the tannins become slightly stronger, but not astringent.

The fruit is subtle but persistent. The next day he presents himself particularly well. Overall, it has a graceful touch that fits the winery's elegant style. A remarkable wine with potential for improvement.

Vintage Port is a single harvest port wine bottled between the second and third year after harvest. It is always red and of all port wines it is the one with the longest aging potential. This long aging potential comes from the complex and concentrated grapes used to produce it. It is very dark in color, rich in tannins, with a lot of body and structure and intense on both the nose and the palate. It is bottled unfiltered to preserve all the elements that can support long-term storage in the bottle. Dark purple when young, the red color becomes lighter over time. However, it takes several decades, if not a century, for the brown nuances to emerge. The fruit flavors remain throughout the life of the Vintage Port. In the initial phase it is fresher, with time more dried fruit aromas emerge. For most port wine collectors and lovers, Vintage Port is the most valued port wine. It is produced in small quantities. Annual production rarely exceeds 1% of total port wine production. And this is only justified by the fact that we need a combination of factors: excellent weather conditions in the best locations to grow grapes in the Douro. It's not about quantity, it's about putting the best of the best in the bottle for us or the next generation to enjoy. In the best harvests, our Vintage Port will contain grapes from the different Quintas to preserve as much complexity as the best grapes can produce. This was the case, for example, in 2005, 2007 or 2011. There are other years when perfection was not achieved in all vineyards. But when we have received grapes in our flagship and most consistent Quinta, Vale d'Agodinho, in perfect conditions and with excellent quality that we believe make a wonderful Vintage Port, then we bottle what we call a Single Quinta Vintage Port. This is the case, for example, with the 2008, 2010 or 2013 vintages. Drink it young if you want to enjoy the freshness and intensity of the best port, or wait a few years and you will experience elegance, complexity and harmony in a bottle of port.

Manufacturer

Although the Quevedo family has been producing port wine for more than 5 generations, the current company was only founded in 1993. This makes us one of the youngest port wine houses on the Douro.

With less than 30 years of existence, we feel like we're still at the beginning of the journey and that every day is a new page that we fill with what we love to do most: explore all the possibilities of enjoying wine.

In the late '70s, Oscar and Beatriz Quevedo decided to start a family in S. João Pesqueira, in the heart of the Douro Valley. Both are descendants of families with a long tradition in viticulture and port wine production.

The first Quevedo vineyards were planted in 1889 by Abel Gouveia Costa in Valongo dos Azeites, in S. João da Pesqueira. Abel was succeeded by his son, Raul Gouveia Costa, who made the business flourish, and then by his son-in-law, João Batista Quevedo, who expanded the vineyards into new operations and passed on the love of winemaking to his son, Oscar Quevedo.

Beatriz's family also had their roots in the Carrazeda district on the north bank of the Douro. The main property of the family was the Quinta da Alegria with the train station of the same name.

After making port in his father's facilities for a number of years, Oscar Sr. built a new winery that is now the Quevedo's headquarters. In the meantime he increased the vineyards to the current 100 hectares and 25 hectares of organic olive cultivation.

In 1993 the Quevedo brand was launched, heralding a new era for the family, who were finally bottling port under their own brand, something only possible since 1986 when Portugal joined the EU.

Growing up surrounded by vineyards and barrels, Cláudia and Oscar Quevedo (Jr.) have followed in their parents' footsteps in the family business.

Cláudia Quevedo graduated in oenology from the University of Vila Real in 1998. Since then she has been making port wines in Quevedo. Cláudia is married to Fernando João Martins and lives near the winery with their children Beatriz and João.

Oscar Quevedo (Jr.), who studied economics in Porto and worked in finance in Switzerland and Spain, joined the family in 2009 after the death of his grandfather. He is responsible for Quevedo sales in more than 40 countries.

He is married to Nadia Adria, who will join the company in 2020 and will be responsible for the Marketing and Tourism department. The couple have three children: Marc, Alba and Miguel.

Manufacturer: Quevedo Vinhos, Quinta da Sra. do Rosário, 5130-326 S. João da Pesqueira, Portugal

Quevedo

Seit Generationen besitzt die Familie Quevedo Felder und Weinberge. In den 70ern und 80ern erweiterten sie ihren Betrieb, Quinta da Alegria, und starteten 1991 als eigenständige Marke. Der im Douro-Tal gelegene Betrieb ist immer noch familiengeführt. Die Quevedos verkauften ihre Trauben meist an große Firmen wie Taylor Port, was ihre Qualität unterstreicht. 1975 begann Oscar Sr., selbst Wein zu produzieren, was die Familie schließlich nach San Jõao de Pesqueira führte. 1983 erwarben sie den Weinberg Quinta Vale D'Agodinho, der jetzt ihr Hauptgrundstück ist. Dieses liegt nahe dem Ort, an dem berühmte Portwein-Persönlichkeiten Schiffbruch erlitten, ein Ereignis, das mit der Geschichte von Baron de Forrester und Dona Antónia Ferreira verbunden ist (1861). 1991 begann Quevedo, Weine unter eigenem Namen zu produzieren, und baute eine Weinkellerei. Heute werden mehr als 100 Hektar bewirtschaftet. Als Claudia, Oscars Tochter, 1999 ihren Abschluss als Önologin machte, übernahm sie die Weinherstellung, während Oscar Jr. für das Marketing zuständig ist. Quevedo exportiert nun weltweit.
