Quinta do Vallado

Quinta do Vallado is 30 minutes downstream from Pinhão, near the town of Pesua da Regua, along the banks of a Douro tributary, river Corgo. Vallado is one of the oldest estates in the Douro, and recently celebrated its 300th anniversary. Quinta do Vallado is run by Jão Ferreira Álvares Ribeiro and Francisco Spratley Ferreira, 6th generation descendants of Port wine legend Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira (who owned the Quinta in the 18th century). For 200 years, the Quinta focused solely on the production of Ports. These were commercialised by the family-owned Ferreira Port House. Recently, Vallado has seen great change. Over the past 30 years, the family has focused on table wines and sold off the Ferreira port house. Today, production is 80% table wines, and 20% port.
