Grape(s): Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz
Localization: Douro, Portugal
Tasting Notes: Quinta da Pacheca is dense, structured and complex. Ripe red fruits and spice nuances envelop the palate. A red wine that surprises.
The Domain: Quinta da Pacheca, one of the best-known properties in the Douro, stands out for being one of the first to bottle its own brand wines.
The name of this Quinta has already been referenced since April 17, 1738, when a dated document appears for the first time the reference to Quinta “da Pacheca”, as its owner D. Mariana Pacheco Pereira. But it was only in 1903 that D. José Freire de Serpa Pimentel decided to develop his growing interest in oenology, buying the property with the aim of dedicating himself to wine production.
Today, a century later, the new generation of Serpa Pimentel takes over the management of the Quinta: Maria, Catarina and José are the young faces of this company of a markedly family nature.
