With less than a hectare, this small vineyard is close to the River Torto in the Douro Valley. It has 29 different grape varieties (49% Tinta Barroca, 20% Touriga Franca and 20% others) planted, all mixed, in a vineyard with an average age of 80 years. Since their first harvest at Quinta Vale D. Maria, back in 1996, the winemaker immediately knew that there were unique characteristics in every parcel. One of them, the oldest parcel and the one with lower altitude and closer to the small river Torto that passes through Vale D. Maria, was especially unique, with its gentle flowery and spicy aromas.

During the 2009 harvest, the winemaker finally decided it was time to show the wine from this very special vineyard on its own. They called it Quinta Vale D. Maria “Vinha do Rio” (Vinha do Rio translates into the river vineyard). 

Tasting Notes

Spectacular wine with a dark violet color and red tears. In the aromas it presents a lot of dark fruit, mainly cherry, besides raspberry, caramel, cocoa, tobacco and with the barrel very well integrated. In the mouth it is extremely rounded with very fine tannins. Very long and pleasant finish.

Food Pairing

The rich, succulent character of this bold red make it an ideal partner for roast lamb or beef and venison dishes.
