Quinta da Romeira

Lisboa, lisboa Portugal

Quinta da Romeira has been producing wines since 1703 and is one of the most prestigious estates in the Bucelas appellation. With 75 hectares planted mainly with Arinto, Quinta da Romeira is purported to be the largest Arinto vineyard in the world.

Located 15 miles north east of Lisbon, Bucelas is protected from the worst of the Atlantic weather systems by the Serra de Montejunto hills to the west and benefits from the moderating influence of the wide estuary of the Tagus river to the east. This favourable mesoclimate, combined with clay-limestone soils on rolling hills, provides the perfect growing environment for Portugal’s Arinto grape variety.

During the Peninsula Wars, the Duke of Wellington developed a taste for the estate’s wines and took them home to London as an offering to King George III. They soon gained a following in Britain, with celebrity fans including Charles Dickens and Lord Byron, and became known as ‘Lisbon’.

The property was bought by Sogrape in 2018.  They have invested heavily in the property, improving the viticulture and putting the talented Antonio Braga (of Azevedo) in charge of winemaking.  The ‘Prova Régia’ is made from 100% Arinto and is unoaked. This crisp, dry wine displays green apple and nettle aromas alongside characterful saline notes. It offers exceptional value for money from a region whose reputation is, once again, on the rise.
