Quinta da Romaneira is one of the great historic Port Wine Quintas of the Douro. The property is vast, one of the three or four largest in the region, with more than three kilometers of river frontage on the Douro river. The greatest wines in the Douro are made from grapes grown in sight either of the Douro itself or of its tributaries: All of Romaneira’s red grapes overlook the Douro itself. The vineyard has over 85 hectares planted, principally with the noble Douro grape varieties of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cao, but also a small proportion of white grapes (Gouveio, Malvasia Fina and Viosinho), and a few experimental hectares of “exotic” grape varieties such as Syrah and Petit Verdot, which are beginning to yield very exciting results for red wine.
