Sino da Romaneira

After 3 years of drought, 2010 had an exceptionally wet winter with rainfall well above average. There followed an extremely hot and dry summer, without a drop of rain in July and August, which retarded maturation. The vines shut down with very high temperatures, but they were able to keep the humidity using the replenished water tables during the hot summer. The vines have managed to maintain very good foliage throughout the year, which allowed good preservation of the grapes. September early rains brought the vines back to life allowing maturation to resume its course. The harvest was delayed. Yields were high compared to 2009 and 2008.

Tasting notes: The Sino 2010 is a very pretty light delicate expression of the Douro terroir. Floral and spicy with notes of black pepper and rose petals characteristics of the great Douro grape varieties of Touriga and Tinta Roriz. Well-balanced, smooth and fresh it has a harmonious finish.

Quinta da Romaneira

Romaneira is one of the great historic Quintas of the Douro Valley in Northern Portugal, on a spectacularly beautiful site overlooking the Douro river facing south, its rocky soil lending its particular character to the wines.

Recently a new and exciting chapter has been added to Romaneira’s long and illustrious story, with the emergence of Romaneira as a key player in the “Douro Revolution”: the discovery that our ancient local grape varieties can be used to make not only excellent Port wines, but increasingly also outstanding unfortified wines that are finding their place among the great wines of the world, while being an expression of our unique terroir.

We are proud of the work of our team, who, building on the experience they gained working on the renaissance of nearby Quinta do Noval, have made major improvements to the Romaneira vineyard over time.

We hope this website helps you share our excitement about Romaneira; read on to find out more about our vision for Romaneira, our wines, history, our terroir and vineyard, and the people who make these wines.
