Quinta do Noval's movie

An exceptional terroir


Quinta do Noval benefits from a privileged position in the heart of the Douro Valley.


The vineyard of 145 hectares which is entirely classified letter A, is planted with the noblest grape varieties of the Douro : Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Sousão.


The parcels of the vineyard possess a rich geographical diversity:
. altitude : from 100 to 500 m
. exposition : all the points of the compass
. the soil : schist mixed in varying degrees with a little clay


This confers particular nuances on the wines according to the parcel they come from. The blending of these nuances results in the magic of the wines of Quinta do Noval.



Cultivation of wine


Today, the parcels are replanted in single grape variety plots to suit each individual parcel of land, according to three principal factors : the altitude, the exposition and the type of planting the vine.


The magnificent old terraces made with schiste stone still represent Quinta do Noval's vineyard.


Quinta do Noval is the only historic Port Shipper to use the name of its vineyard and to produce a Vintage Port from one single vineyard, when declared.
