A wonderful hidden gem! Quinta do Vesuvio is known to be THE premium estate in the Douro Valley, only producing the wines in outstanding years. As a result the name is synonymous with fantastic quality and rarity. Until recently only Vintage Port was produced at this mythical Quinta, however they have now started producing two incredible red wines. Pombal is the second of these and can only be described as a hidden gem of fantastic value for money.

Approachable younger than the Quinta do Vesuvio, the Pombal regardless still shows amazing concentration and complexity with juicy blackberry and plum flavours complimented with some cinnamon and even cedar notes creating a perfectly rounded wine which will be greatly admired at any dinner party. The wine is named Pombal after the iconic dove cote which sits beautifully on one the Quinta's hills.

Quinta do Vesuvio

When the Symington family bought mythical Quinta do Vesuvio, it was decided that, amongst their multitude of estates, this one should be dedicated to producing vintage wines of silky superiority, allowing the fruit and terroir to combine in wines that display the specifics of each vintage, rather than crafting a house style to follow every year.

The terroir of Vesúvio, just 45km from Spain, is only matched in its’ spectacular beauty by the fertile nature of its’ soil, which produces some of the finest wines in the world; only a third are planted with vines, however, with the rest in it’s natural, wild state. The estate’s huge range in altitudes, combined with the extremes of temperatures (from below freezing in winter to over 40°C in summer), makes the estate’s wines a true rarity in one of the driest and harshest wine producing regions of the world.
