QUINTA DA DEVESA Quinta da Devesa was already included in the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region, created by Baron of Forrester in 1844. Acquired by Fortunato family in 1941, it has been since then dedicated to Douro and Port Wines. On the Cima Corgo sub-region, and only 10 kms away from Peso da Régua, Quinta da Devesa vineyard and winery are located on a promontory which overlooks the confluence of the rivers Douro and Corgo, from where a wonderful sight can be enjoyed, covering the valleys of the rivers and mountains of the region. Its 34 hectares, planted with the grape varieties recommended for the region, go from a quota of 60 m up to 500 m high, part facing south getting an excellent sun exposure, and part facing the buttresses of Marão, where it receives natural cool winds. This diversity of solar and wind exposure provides different levels of grape maturation and development, which allow to temporize harvesting in optimal conditions
Since 1941, vintages considered of superior quality by the family winemakers, were kept and stored in wooden barrels in the winery cellars. These extraordinary quality wines are used today to produce Quinta da Devesa Port Wines.
This 20 Year Old White Port is obtained from a selection of grape varieties recommended for the Douro region. The ageing process occurs naturally over many years, in oak vats at Quinta da Devesa cellars, thus resulting in a darkened colour.

This +40 year old Port is the result of a blend of very old wines from Quinta da Devesa, developed with noble wine grapes used in the Douro region, aged over decades in wooden casks at Quinta da Devesa cellars.
Quinta da Devesa Port Wines, are produced exclusively from lots vinified and aged in the estate.
Hand picked grapes.
Very complex bouquet, with predominant aromas of dried fruits and honey.
The palate is soft and mellow.

REVIEWS & AWARDS
94 Points Robert Parker – 2018
“The 40-Year Old Port (technically +40, although that would have buggered up the search engine) has a clear, deep mahogany color, although there a little more reddishness here compared to the 30-Year Old. The nose is more volatile than the 30-Year Old – this is feisty and boisterous and refuses to act its age. I kind of like that and it soon calms down to offer aromas of balsam,
cloves, shaved ginger, fig and marjoram. The palate is lively and bright with the right amount of VA to give it a kick without unbalancing the layers of spicy honeyed fruit. Nutmeg, orange rind, black pepper, tamarind and dried apricots toward the finish somehow evoke images of Morocco. Wonderful!”
