Ramos Pinto makes several single-quinta ports, capturing the special qualities of each vineyard in the wine. Quinta de Ervamoira is located in the Douro Superior, situated on the left bank of the Douro River where it meets the Côa River, and is the winery’s experimental vineyard. Here, 240 acres of vines are planted vertically, a departure from the traditional terraced rows stepping horizontally up the steep slopes rising from the river. Vertical planting allows closer spacing of vines, which results in less fruit per plant but more concentrated fruit flavors. Per-vine production is decreased while overall production by hectare goes up. Like most of the land along the Douro, the soil at Ervamoira is schistous and very poor. Varietals: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca
Made from high quality wines of the Quinta de Ervamoira by blending harvests of, on average, ten different years. The new wines make it robust and fresh while the oldest wines give it complexity and lineage. Its characteristic aroma and palate are the result of the artistry achieved by our winemaker.
