Located in the Alijó Valley, Quinta de Cottas is a 10 ha property that enjoys the conditions of excellence for the production of Douro and Port wines.In 2006, Isabel and Pedro Carmo were attracted by a vineyard that once belonged to a large and important quinta. Their great love for wine and the Douro valley made it impossible for them not to take the opportunity to produce their own wines in this unique region giving rise to this wine project.
They quickly started the reconversion of the property, recovering the existing old vineyard plot and planting the remaining available area.From the very beginning they defined that the approach at Quinta de Cottas would be to capture the essence of the Douro’s main grape varieties, producing high quality wines with a distinct personality that expressed their unique terroir.
At Quinta de Cottas we have assumed an environmental responsibility based on minimal disturbance of the soil to preserve the Douro’s biodiversity.We practice viticulture in a sustainable way with the minimum use of herbicides, insecticides or pesticides, treating the land with the respect it deserves.
Our commitment to sustainability is the practice of sustainable viticulture in order to improve the environment for future generations.Our environmental impact extends equally to packaging in order to establish a full cycle commitment. Using recycled materials in our packaging and reducing the total weight of the bottle substantially reduces the amount of CO2 per bottle produced and reduces energy consumption during transport. Lighter glass means less impact on our land, water and people.
