O Produtor, tasting note published in August 15th 2020

Intense citrine color with greenish reflections. On the nose, it unveils an unusual complexity, with aromas of peach and ripe orange, some wet stone mineral notes, all wrapped in subtle smoky nuances. A noticeable volume on the palate, full-bodied yet remaining elegant and harmonious. It concludes with a crispy citrus freshness that provides persistence and longevity.

Quinta da Rede

The oldest historical records of Quinta da Rede date from 1484. It is part of the Douro wine region even before the 1756 demarcation. The Quinta overlooks the Douro River on its right bank, between Mesão Frio and Régua, an altitude of between 90 and 140 metres. It is renowned for being the place where fishing nets (meaning Rede) once stretched from one side of the Douro River to the other. Quinta da Rede belongs to the magnificent Douro wine-growing landscape that has been recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage.
Quinta da Rede has a privileged location in the Douro, next to the river and where white and red Reserva and Grande Reserva wines are produced.
José Alves, the owner, acquired the quinta in 1995, in order to set his project in motion, which aims to change in some way the way in which the vineyards and wines of the Douro are worked, produced and promoted.
More ideas to cement and extend the brand to external markets and clients will be presented here soon.
We want our clients and friends to be aware of everything that is happening at Quinta da Rede and with its wines.
