Produced only in exceptional vintages, this wine is produced from the best Touriga Franca plots on the estate.
The grapes used to make our Vintage Ports come from our best old vines. They are then foot trodden in old stone tanks called “lagares”. Our Vintage Ports are bottled unfiltered after maturing for two years in large Portuguese oak vats. When young they are usually a very dark ruby in color almost opaque with intense aromas of very ripe fruit. Combining in highly complex wines that have great longevity.
A unique blend of old-vine Spanish varieties with younger French vines, this wine possesses an amaranthine color and intriguing aromas of ripe forest berries, lavender, anise seed and cedar
Viura vineyards in the Valtomelloso area. Championing the know-how and tradition of Rioja whites. Pure dynamism, maturity and class. Reminiscent of intimate mysteries, with fruit and white flower notes.
Quinta do Crasto Colheita is an old Tawny produced from a single year with grapes coming exclusively from the oldest vineyards of Quinta do Crasto. It ages in oak casks from the harvest year until it is bottled. This wine is a tribute from the 4th generation of the family to Fernando Moreira d’Almeida, son of the famous Port producer Constantino de Almeida, reflecting his wisdom in the elaboration of Port wines of excellence.
The genesis of great wines is great vineyards. Our Oso Vineyard, located between Sugarloaf Mountain and Howell Mountain in the great Napa Valley, is a truly special labor of love. In 2004, our family planted this spot with cuttings from one of the best known root stocks of Sauvignon Blanc with origins tracing to the esteemed Château d'Yquemand which first made its way to California via Charles Wetmore, renowned wine pioneer of the 1880s. Ten years after planting and using the same trellising methods from the 19th century, we made our first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc. Since then, our Heritage Block has delivered beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, vintage after vintage.
