Quinta da Costa do Pinhão
Quinta da Costa, today run by couple Miguel and Fillipa, has been in the family for six generations. It is located along the Pinhão River in the heart of the Douro in northern Portugal. The vines are located at altitudes ranging from 200 meters to 450 meters, with exposure to south-east, south, and south-west, all of them planted in slate-heavy soil.
In the seventies and eighties, the grandfather of the Miguel dedicated himself to the reconversion of the vine, expanding the area and mechanizing the vineyard. He decided to keep about three hectares of old vineyard in memory of his ancestors. It is with these old vines that they produce their best wines today.
In 2006, the Quinta passed into the hands of the Miguel, and they have been dedicated to producing the best grapes and, inevitably, the best wine ever since. Respecting tradition and looking forward is are key for QCP, and their wines teel that story.
