Douro red wines are produced from blends of Touriga Nacional grapes with Tinta Roriz or Touriga Franca, among many others (but also using single varieties). They are full-bodied and robust, with notes of berry fruit aromas.

Although they have excellent ageing potential, they may be drunk young to appreciate their intense fruitiness.


One of the least known styles in the region, Douro whites tend to be dry, smooth and rich, with floral, citrus and mineral notes.

Full-bodied by nature, these wines are often aged in wood and are straw-coloured, reminiscent of tropical fruits. They come mainly from a blend of grapes such as Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Malvasia Fina. There are also excellent examples of single varietal wines.

Douro Rosé

Rosé wines are produced from red grapes, using the same method used for white wines (they ferment without the skins).

They present floral aromas of violet and lavender and strawberry and raspberry flavours, with fresh mineral nuances and are salmon or bright pink colour.
