About this Winery

Quinta do Passadouro Winery is situated within Cima-Corgo, a sub-region of the Douro Valley. The property was acquired in 1991 by the Bohrmann family, but the estate was originally founded in the eighteenth century. Since 1991, acquisitions of surrounding land have expanded the property to include 20 hectares (49.4 acres) of vineyards and 5 hectares (12.4 acres) of olive trees. Quinta do Passadouro Winery continues the old traditions of this vine growing estate, and always seeks to improve the quality and reputation of its wines.

Within the 8 hectares (19.8 acres) of old vineyards on the property, a wide range of grape varieties are planted. In the remaining hectares of new vineyards Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Sousão are planted, important grape varietals commonly cultivated in the Douro Valley.

The rigorous selection of grapes from the vineyards, which occurs before crushing, is one of the most important practices at Quinta do Passadouro, because it ensures that only the best grapes go into the lagares. Once in the lagares, the grapes are foot trodden. This maceration process facilitates the extraction of the qualities of the grapes in an intense and delicate way. Finally, old chestnut barrels are used for port wines and French oak barriques, barrels,for others, which allows the natural stabilization and aging of the wines before bottling.

The combination of traditional methods and modern techniques employed at Quinta do Passadouro produces wines that express the character and local flavor of the Pinhão Valley: balanced, concentrated wines, full of black ripe fruit and wild flowers.
