Romana Vini produces its wines in two different properties: Quinta do Porto Nogueira and Quinta da Escusa. These two places are only 12 km apart from each other, belonging to different wine-growing regions. Quinta do Porto Nogueira is located in the Lisbon Region (DOC Óbidos) and Quinta da Escusa in the Tagus Region (DOC Santarém).

Quinta da Escusa is located in the very particular location of Senhora da Escusa, near Rio Maior, which is circa 70 km northeast from Lisbon, between the rural villages of Quintas and Vale Barco. Some of Quinta da Escusa's lands belonged to the grandparents and parents of the current owners who, for decades, have worked there doing agriculture and viticulture.

The soil is sandy but fertile, located between Serra de Aire e Candeeiros (“Aire and Candeeiros Mountain”) and Serra de Montejunto (“Montejunto Mountain”), south of Tagus River, on the Ribatejo heath, marked by a hot summer climate, where grapes ripen faster. Each portion of the 10 hectares vineyards in Quinta da Escusa – which are DOC Santarém classified - is treated and valued as unique and different.

These lands produce excellent red grapes such as Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Tinta Miúda, Sousão, Castelão and Syrah. Additionally, white grapes are produced as well in this property: the Portuguese Arinto and Moscatel Alexandria.

Choosing Every Grape
Only the best-selected fruit is used in the winemaking process. They adopted a rigorous Grape Selection Process that assures the selection of the best grapes: pre-harvested grapes, bunches selection while harvesting and in the cellar, and final selection of berries on the table.

The Cellar
Only grapes harvested in their vineyards are used to produce their wines. The white grapes, when pressed, are fermented in small vats. Both our Mono-varietal and Reserva blend white wines are aged in French or American oak barrels under fine lees, with batonnage.

On the other hand, the red ones are gently trampled and macerated in mills, following the fermentation in small vats. Part of Harvest red wines and both Mono-varietal and Reserva blends are aged in French or American oak barrels from the well-known cooperages french Tonnellerie Séguin Moreau and Portuguese Tonnellerie JM Gonçalves.
