Barca Velha 2008 has a deep ruby hue and an intense, complex bouquet with a strong presence of well-ripened red fruit, spices such as pepper and clove, and hints of balsamic cedar, resin and tobacco box. Notes of asparagus and artichokes, sous bois and aromas of high-quality oak mingle in perfect harmony. Its palate is full-bodied, with lively balanced acidity, intense tannins and notes of fresh red fruits, pepper, clove and ginger. It has an extraordinarily long, graceful and harmonious finish.

EXCELLENCE, NOBILITY AND TRADITION


Under Dona Antónia, who was twice widowed, finding herself in charge of a large company, she consolidated admirably. Her entrepreneurial spirit taught her to predict, decide, create, teach and love, making her a hugely prominent, charismatic figure.

With the death of Dona Antonia, the business became a limited company and began a new stage of adapting to market developments, while remaining rooted in the quality obtained through the unique heritage of its Douro estates, supported by the best œnological methods, to produce excellent wines under one strong brand.

These values carried Casa Ferreirinha all the way to the present day and were crucial to creating and continuing this brand’s great wines as well as constituting a unique heritage and an unparalleled historical archive. Thorough knowledge of the Douro Superior, the features of its climate and soil and carefully selecting the varieties to be used also came to be crucial to the company's strategy. This strategy, backed by 250 years of experience in the Douro Region, in 1978 led Casa Ferreirinha to acquire Quinta da Leda, located at Almendra, Vila Nova de Foz Coa, with its very modern winery which was to be completed by Sogrape Vinhos in 2001.

The grapes of these vineyards, of a quality surpassing the most optimistic expectations, processed using the expertise of a team led by winemaker Luís Sottomayor, provided the basis for Casa Ferreirinha's premium wines, including the renowned Barca Velha and Reserva Especial, and also Quinta da Leda and Callabriga.

This solid framework has allowed Casa Ferreirinha to extend its portfolio to various market segments. Vinha Grande and Esteva, two benchmarks in their own categories, are also marketed under the brand's auspices.


(PRODUCT LIMITED TO 1 BOTTLE PER CLIENT) Barca Velha represents the pinnacle of quality amongst Douro wine. Classic, intense, complex, elegant and rich, adjectives are inadequate to describe what is, and has been since its creation in 1952, the most celebrated Portuguese wine. Barca Velha is only declared in exceptional years and is the foundation upon which Casa Ferreirinha has built its reputation, a specialist brand with a long tradition of quality in the Douro and one of its main global references. Barca Velha has only been bottled on 18 occasions (up to and including 2008).
