The Bergqvist family has been involved in the Douro’s port trade since 1815, with the Quinta de la Rosa estate gifted to current owner Sophia Bergqvist’s grandmother Clara as a christening present in 1906. The winery rose to become one of Portugal’s top quality port producers over the course of the next 90 years – but it was in the 1990s when its prowess as a still wine producer in the region became evident. Quinta de la Rosa was a pioneering force for still winemaking in the Douro, helping propel it to world recognition and renown.
Quinta de la Rosa’s landscape is unusual; it remains one of the only Single Quintas in the Douro to start at the bank of the river and stretch up to a peak of 450ml. This unique span of land covers an incredible eleven microclimates, each of which ensures additional layers of complexity and depth in the Quinta de la Rosa wines.
