  • Tasting nodes
    Portugal - the wine-growing country with lots of authochthonous grape varieties - is presently a personal tip. Portuguese wines are of garnet colour, full-bodied with young and solid tannins and a hint of oak in the finish. They match with game, grilled food, roasts and especially well with a selection of cheeses.

  • Quinta da Sequeira
    HISTORY Quinta da Sequeira, is a traditional family-owned estate located in Vila Nova de Foz Côa in the Douro Superior Region. Was founded in 1899 by José Joaquim Costa and his wife Maria José Sequeira, from whom the Quinta gets its name. Today, the estate is owned by José Joaquim Costa s great-great-grand-daughter Maria da Graça, and her husband, M rio Cardoso.The Quinta de Sequeira s prime location in the Douro Superior is crucial for the superior quality of the grapes. The combination of a schist soil, a very low rainfall and a large thermic range, provides the most intense, rich and concentrated wines.The predominant red grape varieties present in the vineyards are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Barroca. The white varieties are Malvazia Fina, Gouveio, Rabigato, Viosinho and C dega do Larinho.
