O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2018

Very expressive and seductive aroma, full of red fruit and floral aromas. In spite of all its concentration, the Reserva pass 2015 is not a hot or overly full-bodied wine. It is smooth and full of flavors with great persistence of mouth, which is given not by tannin or acidity, but by its wonderful fruit.

The idea: Quinta das Bandeiras is a 100 hectare property located in Pocinho, next to the river Douro and opposite the famous Vale Meão. With Bandeiras grapes, we embarked on a 50:50 adventure with Jorge Moreira, to produce and market the wine. The wine will be named Passage – appropriate for several reasons. There is a train line with an abandoned level crossing on the property. And Passage also portrays the journey and experience of two distinct families in the Douro: the Bergqvist (English) family and the Moreira (Portuguese) family. Production Notes: The fantastic quality of grapes in the harvest of 2015 caught everyone by surprise. We did not have the ideal weather conditions to have a great year, but we were very pleased with the beautiful grapes that arrived at the winery. The winter and spring were dry and with little rain. A stable time that allowed a good flowering and that predicted an abundant vintage (good news after two years with relatively low production). The summer was generally warm and with little rain, with the exception of a storm we had in May. In August the vines were under intense stress due to the lack of water darkening their leaves and making them brownish – especially in younger vines with smaller roots. But the good news is that the fruit overcame this stress and entered the cellar with high quality. The harvest was long and slow. Jorge always says that deciding when to start grape cutting is his most important decision and this year was not easy. We began cutting the white grape early in the middle of August before the rain. Aging and aging process: The wine was matured in French oak barrels, namely Boutes, François Freres, Taransaud and Seguin Moreau.

Quinta de La Rosa

Quinta de la Rosa has been in the Bergqvist family since 1906, although they have been in the port trade as shippers under the family name, Feueheerd, since 1815. It currently has around 55 hectares under vine and produces around 50,000 litres of port and 160,000 litres of table wine each year.

Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present for Claire Feueheerd, Sophia’s grandmother, in 1906. The family port shipping company, Feueheerd, was sold in the 1930s but La Rosa was kept and run by Sophia’s grandmother, Claire. In 1988 Sophia and her father, Tim Bergqvist, decided to restart the family business and launched Quinta de la Rosa as a top quality port producer onto the market place.

Starting in the early 1990s, the Bergqvist famuly were one of the pioneers in taking red wine production in the Douro region seriously. Quinta de la Rosa’s wines, both red and white, have won many accolades in the press and are sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world. Since 2002, Jorge Moreira, one of the finest wine makers in Portugal, has been making wines at La Rosa.

Quinta de la Rosa is situated in Northern Portugal, 100kms inland from Oporto. It is set in the heart of the Alto Douro ‘A’ grade port growing area and is located along the banks of the river, near Pinhão.
