Portugal Douro Pinhao Quinta Rosa Exterior

The property is owned by the Bergqvist family, formerly trading under the family name of Feuerheerd Bros, who have been shipping Port Wine since 1815.
In 1988 Tim Bergqvist, and his daughter Sophia, decided to re-launch Quinta de La Rosa as an independent estate. They took advantage of the change in Port Wine regulations which enables producers to sell Port direct from their estates and not through the established houses based at Vila Nova de Gaia, near Oporto.

Nowadays, all aspects of production are done on site: growing, harvesting, treading and vinifying followed by maturation, blending and bottling.
