Quinta Do Romeu

The Menéres family has been producing Port and DOC Douro wines, hailing from 25 hectares (60 acres) of vineyards on its estate, since 1874, that are (literally) those found further north in the Douro demarcated reg ion.

 

The vineyards, the olive graves, the cork oak forest and two streams coexist at Romeu interlaced on their natural way, forming a living patchwork with many birds, squirrels, livestock or wild boars, that favors both the ecosystem and those fortunate enough to experience the landscape. 

The average altitude of the vineyards is 320m above the sea level, with multiple sun exposures. Schist shale soils in the transition to the granite. Dry climate, with both daily and yearly wide thermal variations. Viticulture on Quinta do Romeu has been organic since 1995. In fact, the entire estate is currently certified organic, meaning that our agricultural practices are chemical-free. The reason is a belief that this approach brings out the best tastes  and aromas to the products and that both people and the environment are left better off.
