Near the viewpoint of S. Salvador do Mundo (one of the best spots of Douro valley) and the mythical Cachão da Valeira, this is where the Douro Superior begins.
Quinta da Cassa estate is located on the left bank of the Douro, among grade “A” vineyards. This is the area where the best Vintage Ports are born.
With an average altitude of 150 m, in schist soils highly rocky overlooking the River with predominant sun exposure to West and North, the vineyards were planted in ‘patamares’ (a modern version of the traditional terraces), using the finest Douro’s grape varieties, such as Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca or Touriga Nacional.
The wines of Quinta da Cassa delight us for its character and aromatic purity, standing out by the gastronomic vocation, taking roots at the table and being the perfect match with our rich traditional Portuguese cuisine of Mediterranean inspiration.
