QUINTA DE LA ROSA

The terroir in the Douro offers incredible opportunity. None more so than La Rosa’s whose ideal location a mere 2km from Pinhão in the epicentre of the Cima Corgo sub-region, is home to some of the region’s finest vineyards. They rise dramatically out of the river with the imposing Vale do Inferno vineyard and climb majestically up to an altitude of 400m with Lamelas, whose magnificent views overlook the very heart of the region. The estate’s grapes are all category A – the very best the Douro has to offer.

La Rosa

The 62 hectares of vine are perfectly nestled on the north bank of the river and have been systematically replanted to ensure optimal balance and complexity. The morning sun, along with the schist soils and extremely varied topography give each vineyard their own distinct characteristics that enable our rich, full bodied wines to have remarkable acidity, minerality, and freshness. And it is this for which La Rosa has become renown; elegant wines that express terroir in bottle with out too much extraction, tannin, or oak.

Production

The vast majority of our production is red wine and port. However, in recent years Douro whites have really come into focus and have grown in stature. La Rosa’s whites are characterised by their remarkable freshness and minerality that belie the valley’s extreme heat. Going forward we are committed to continuous experimentation and improvement of our whites, as a result, in 2019 we replanted 2.3 hectares of Cerejinha vineyard with Alvarinho, Arinto and, Gouveio.
