Quinta Nova Pomares Red Blend 2016
For decades the Amorim family has been the world leader of the cork industry. In 1999 they acquired Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo in the Douro Valey. Luisa Amorim, is at the heart and soul of this project, leading a small team mostly comprised of women.
Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is a unique place that runs along the north bank of the river Douro for just short of one mile. Of its 296 acres, 210 are planted with letter A vines. The Quinta includes a manor house, now a hotel, that dates back to the early 18th century; a baroque chapel; an olive mill and a winery. Surrounded by the stunning orchards and vineyards, the Quinta deeply reflects the Douro agriculture tradition.
The name Quinta Nova results from the joining of two Quintas (farms). Nossa Senhora do Carmo (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel) is a tribute to its patron Saint.
