Quinta dos Roques

By Rui Falcão*


Quinta dos Roques has grown dramatically over the past two decades.  They create both varietals and blends with great ease, showing their expertise and combining old with modern techniques which is evident in their top-end wines.  The perfect balance of fruit and acidity is renowned for wines from the Dão region. 

A lot of work goes into producing these wines and they are able to spend a lifetime being bottled. The investment in their varietal wines has always been one of the hallmarks of the house, with particular attention for the Touriga Nacional which has become legendary in Quinta dos Roques.
