Of exceptional freshness, the Vinha da Francisca 2018 stands out for its elegance. With a great depth of color, this wine seduces by the concentration of aromas of ripe red fruits, black cherry, plum and raspberry. Elegance and freshness announce a long and creamy finish.

Ideally matched with meat or fish dishes in the oven. Our preference is a harmonization with mushroom dishes, whether risotto, pasta or pizza. Delicious with cheese, particularly cow's milk.

QUINTA VALE D.MARIA


At the end of 1993, when leaving Quinta do Noval, it was my ambition to contribute to the development of independent producers in the Douro, thus not only contributing to the establishment of a new and strong wave of innovation in the region, but also complementing, and at the same time diminishing, the Region's dependence on one single type of wine: Port.


(PRODUCT LIMITED TO 1 BOTTLE PER CLIENT) Since 1996, our first harvest at Quinta Vale D. Maria, we identified theunique characteristics of each parcel of vineyard. Each and every onehas a story to tell. In 2004, the year of our daughter Francisca’s 18thbirthday, we planted Vinha da Francisca (Francisca’s Vineyard) withseveral different grape varieties amongst which is Tinta Francisca. Thisgrape variety was introduced in Portugal, in the Douro in 1756 atQuinta de Roriz – which belonged to the van Zeller family until 2009.We also planted Touriga Franca, Sousão, Rufete and Touriga Nacional inan area of 4,5 hectares.
