Quinta Nova
(de Nossa Senhora do Carmo)

Douro

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is located just west of Pinhao on the northern side of the river.  As well as being an excellent vineyard estate it is also a top-awarded hotel retreat, well worth a visit when you are in this part of the world. There is a train service from Porto - one the 'great railway journeys of the world'.  Ferrão station is at the foot of the vineyard. Here is a brochure explaining the current tourism offer for 2014/5, including all the facilities, meal options, walking routes and much much more.

Pomares is an introductory range, giving a great feel for the wines of this wondrous valley.  Ther main range trade under their simple name Quinta Nova.  The Grainha range forms a range at an intermediate price level.  (Pomares and Grainha have white wine partners, sourced from off the estate, which is why they do not carry the estate name - but all reds are entirely estate fruit)

Port wines

 

Clã - Reserve port – 75 cl
Cleverly packaged, made for group drinking!  Clã - is Portuguese for clan.

Clã Muscatel Licoroso - 75cl
Luscious, sweet and 16.5% alcohol

Quinta Nova LBV – 75cl
virtually a match for vintage port, in our humble opinion.  Very fine, single estate, traditional 'Late Bottled' vintage port.
