Quinta do Infantado has been owned by the Roseira family for well over a century. In 1979, it became the first Port producer to start bottling its wines on the estate in the Douro, rather than in Vila Nova de Gaia. The name ‘Infantado’ derives from ‘Infante’ (the Portuguese for ‘heir to the throne’) and it was the Portuguese royal family who first built the winery in 1816, as a place where they could collect taxes in the form of grapes and wine brought to them by the local growers. João Roseira now looks after the vineyards and oversees the winemaking.
Light tawny in colour, this port has intense aromas of dried fruits with hints of citrus fruits. Medium weight in the mouth, it is elegant and long on the finish.
