Description

Quinta Santa Eufemia

Quinta de Santa Eufemia was founded in 1864 by the traditional Douro family Bernardo Rodrigues de Carvalho who have always produced wines and port. Quinta de Santa Eufemia is located in the Douro River valley southeast of Peso da Regua in northern Portugal, in the heart of the oldest recognised wine region in the world. Quinta de Santa Eufemia has 45 hectares of vineyards with slate soil. This soil is responsible for the perfect grapes that produce good port and wine production every year. Today, the vineyard is under the management of the fourth generation of the family. Since 1994, the family has been producing port wines using the centuries of knowledge, experience, the family's own distinctive stamp and the modern techniques of the present day. The Carvalho family has owned Quinta de Santa Eufemia for four generations. The experience of this traditional Portuguese family goes back 150 years to making delicious port in the beautiful Douro Valley.
