7 vintages of Quinta do Noval Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval is one of the oldest port houses and is also arguably one of the greatest. It is unique among top port houses in that most of the ports are made from estate-grown fruit and, notably, all of the vintage Noval wines are from the single Quinta do Noval vineyard.

Noval is mentioned in land registries going back to 1715, and has been sold just twice in that time, once in the late 19th century, and to its present owners in 1993. Noval has, however, a reputation for being an innovative, independent producer.

Noval Vineyard

The astonishing terraced vineyards of Noval, perched above the Douro and Pinhao rivers, are an infertile schist, and not soil as much as sheer rock. The elevation of the vineyards goes from just above river level to 400 metres, with density at about 2,000 vines per acre, and vines producing on average 30-35 hectoliters per hectare.

"Quinta do Noval is unusual among the great traditional Port houses in that it emphasizes the importance of the vineyard.  It is significant that the company is named after its vineyard, that it is entirely based on the Douro Valley, and that its principal Vintage Ports, Quinta do Noval Nacional and Quinta do Noval, are both single-vineyard wines. The aim is to produce classic Vintage Ports that are harmonious and elegant expressions of Quinta do Noval's terroir.  Strict selection in the vineyard, low yields, and strict selection again in the tasting room result in a small production." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
