Visitors are welcomed next to the wine cellar, filled with barrels, by a welcoming and professional team.
The guided tour includes a detailed and unhurried explanation of the production process of the estate’s wines. This experience does not include a tasting.
The original winery was founded in 1764. Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo has been listed since the first demarcation of the Douro wine region in 1756. Not to be forgotten – Quinta Nova is the only estate in the Douro with a Wine Museum presenting artifacts of port wine production in the 19th ad the 20th century.
Today, Quinta Nova has 120 hectares of vineyards. Since 1999, the estate has been owned by the Amorim family who is also well-known for its business producing cork stoppers for port wine. The focus is on high-quality dry red wines.
Come here for excellent wines, warm hospitality, a wonderful hotel, and a restaurant with a view of the Douro river and the valley.
