O produtor, tasting note published in May 25th 2018

Blackberry, blueberry and raspberry aromas mixed with rockrose and violet notes. Leaves and elegant end in the mouth where wild fruits and floral touches stand out, with small black chocolate notes. This wine has an excellent structure, perfect for intense cheese, sausages and game dishes.

Quinta do Couquinho

Couquinho, the wine that literary means “a very faraway place”, can be traced back to the Melo Trigo family, in the Upper Douro region of Portugal, for over two centuries. Many of the family’s estates, including the renowned Quinta do Couquinho, are nestled in the Vilariça Valley, where local stories and legends intertwine with those of the family. Quinta do Couquinho spans across 70 hectares, of which approximately 60 hectares are cultivated. Filled mostly with vineyards and olive groves, a small orchard of almond, orange, clementine, fig and apple trees complete the landscape. Located in the Douro Superior area of the Douro Demarcated Region, it borders the Alto Douro Wine Region, the area that was classified by UNESCO as a world heritage site in 2001. The Quinta’s vast vineyard is set in undulating land where the vines are cultivated in terraces known as “socalcos”. The four main types of Douro grapes, Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Barroca are all grown at Couquinho and the wine is produced in the Quinta’s own winery, stored in barrels of French oak and then bottled.
