2017 was the second driest year on record in the Douro and the hottest in the last four decades. The excellent quality of the grapes received at the winery and the outcome of the harvest exceeded all expectations. 

Quinta do Vesúvio is widely regarded as one of the most iconic properties in the Douro, with a magnificent estate house and chapel overlooking the river. The estate dates to 1823 when the first vines were planted and construction began on the winery, which is still in use today for producing the property’s Vintage Ports in granite foot-treading tanks.
