More about this Producer
Quinta da Boavista was included in the first ever demarcation of the Douro demarcated region, ordered by Portugal’s powerful first minister the Marquis of Pombal, in 1757. The estate’s main house was a favorite abode of Baron Joseph James Forrester, the illustrious wine-maker, map-maker, painter and historic defender of best practices in the Port industry.
Half of the 80 hectares of this estate is under vine and all its vineyards have the top “A” classification. In short, Boavista is a jewel among the Douro’s quintas.
Located on the Douro’s right bank, just West of the sleepy town of Pinhão and endowed with a unique, spectacular view over the river, this icon of the Demarcated Douro Region is best-known for its quality vines, some a century old, planted in schist terraces built by the arduous labor of men and beast in the 19th Century and before. On this property, one feels as if time has stood still, that memories are rigorously preserved, making Quinta da Boavista an ex-libris of the breathtaking mix of natural beauty and human ingenuity that is the Douro. The sum of all these elements is an ideal terroir for producing wines of exceptional quality.
