About

Quinta das Carvalhas offers unique views over the Douro Valley. A private scenic road goes to the top of the hill, through vineyards and gardens, where the property’s guesthouse is located, offering a 360º panoramic view.
This Quinta stands out in the landscape for its vineyard planted in steep terraces facing the Douro river and the tributary Torto river.
The total vineyard area is 134.5 hectares of which 37.7 hectares are traditional old wines, a complex blend of indigenous varieties.
Since the 1950’s, the Estate has been the property of the Silva Reis family, also proprietors of Real Companhia Velha, the oldest company in Portugal, founded by Royal Charter of King D. José I in 1756.
Quinta das Carvalhas offers winery tours and tastings, you also walk through vineyards and taste some port wine after. The highlight is the personal tour with Álvaro Martinho, the viticultural manager at Quinta das Carvalhas. This unique tour finishes at the wine shop with a tasting of the top wines of Carvalhas (White, Tinta Francisca, Touriga Nacional & Vinhas Velhas) paired with a platter of local cheeses and charcuterie, and finishing with a glass of port wine.
