Carvalhas

Quinta das Carvalhas is the oldest and most emblematic property of Real Companhia Velha. Due to its immense historical heritage and an intense and rational requalification, it represents today the best of what we have and are capable of doing. These wines are a reflection of our soil, our sun, our vines, our history, and all our knowledge.

Carvalhas Branco was born in 2010 through an ambitious approach to small plots of white grapes located at one of the highest points of the estate, where the Viosinho and Gouveio varieties benefit from high altitude (400m) and cool breezes, providing ideal conditions for the ripening of white grapes.

The presence of Viosinho lends the wine its structure and generous character, as this grape is known for its remarkable ability to interact with wood, while Gouveio imparts tremendous freshness, minerality, acidity, and elegance to the wine.

Enjoy this magnificent white Douro while young; however, it will reward those who choose to let it evolve in the bottle. An ideal partner for salted fish, cod, seafood, and strong cheeses such as São Jorge or Azeitão, or even with a pork loin.
