Quevedo's Tawny Port Colheita 1997 is an excellent example of the 1997 vintage, considered one of the best of the 1990s for port wines.

This wine offers refreshing acidity and a rich variety of flavors, including notes of crème brûlée, nutty undertones and hints of caramel, rounded off by an appealing finish with notes of grilled hazelnuts.

Tasting Notes:

  • Color: Medium saturation, dark brick red.
  • Aroma: Subtle but inviting aroma with recognizable scents of candied fruits and freshly picked berries.
  • Taste: The wine is characterized by refreshing acidity and flavors of candied fruits, crème brûlée and nuts. The finish is characterized by grilled hazelnuts.

The 1997 Colheita Tawny Port is a cuvée made from typical grape varieties of the region, mainly from the Quinta Vale d'Agodinho.

It was stored first in large 14,000 liter containers and then in 650 liter barrels. Although it was released on the market in 2014, it has developed further thanks to additional storage time and a new bottling.

The wine is spicy, lively and shows notes of olives and herbs. It has a velvety texture and a fruity finish.

There is no need to store colheitas, so enjoy it immediately.

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.
