Quevedo is part of a new generation of small family wineries based in the Douro. For many years, these families were growing grapes, and making Port wine, for merchants based in Vila Nova de Gaia. When Portugal joined the European Union in 1986, legislation changed to allow both grape growers and wineries in the Douro to export their wines directly to the retailer. As a result of this new legislation, the family brand “Quevedo” was born.
They cultivate 100 ha of vineyards across six properties in the Douro valley, from the sub-regions of the Cima Corgo and the Douro Superior. The diversity of their vineyards provides grapes of varying aromas and flavors to help us craft our wine.
