List of products by producer Quinta de Mosteirô

The Quinta de Mosteirô is located in the Northeast of Portugal, surrounded by mountains that grant it particular mesological and climatic characteristics. It belongs to the Douro Region (Baixo Corgo sub-region), classified by the UNESCO as World Heritage Site in December 2001.

The oldest references to the Quinta de Mosteirô date from the 12th century (Fernandes, 1991-1993: vol. I, 80, doc.74). However, the first (known) register in which the wine production is referred dates from the middle of the 16th century, in the writing of Rui Fernandes “Description of the Terroir Around Lamego (1531-1532)”. According to this document the Quinta de Mosteirô belonged to, and was administrated by, the Cistercians of the S. João de Tarouca. The White Monks (thus known because of the colour of their religious habit) settled in the most fertile and beautiful spots of Douro where they developed the vineyard production through the implementation of their vine growing methods, based on dutiful care of the grape-vines plantation and wise choice of the grape varieties.


According to the same document, the quality of the terroir and high production of the Quinta de Mosteirô put it among the biggest vinicultural Douro estates of that time. Because all the wine produced in the estate was of high quality, it was all considered “wine for shipment” (“vinhos de carregação”). At the time these were the only wines considered apt for exporting because of their high quality.

In 1983, the Quinta de Mosteirô was bought by José Arnaldo Coutinho and in 1991, under the lead of his son Manuel Coutinho, the vineyards were recovered following the local and the EEC directives for the production of DOC and Port wines. The vineyards were completely replanted with the noble grape varieties of the region in separated and identified strips of land that enable the making of monovarietal wines.


From the 180 recommended grape varieties recommended by the official organisms for the production of DOC and Port wines, 22 were selected:
White: Códega de Larinho, Esgana Cão, Gouveio Verdelho, Gouveio Real, Malvasia Fina, Rabigato, Viosinho and Fernão Pires.
Red: Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Touriga Fêmea/Brasileira, Touriga Franca, Alvarelhão, Bastardo, Sousão, Tinta Francisca, Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Rufete and Tinta da Barca.
This choice allowed the revival of some ancient grape varieties that are perfectly adequate to the terroir.
