Quinta do Convento

Red

12.30 

Anselmo Mendes and Diogo Lopes paired up and created the Quinta do Convento (Convent Estate) wines.

The estate is located in São Pedro das Águias and is intimately connected to Douro history. References to the estate started around the 12th century when the Cistercian Order monks settled there, decisively contributing to the introduction of the wine culture to the region.

The Roman bridge that connects the margins of the Távora river (and which was rebuilt during the Middle Ages) is undeniable proof of this estate’s longevity.

It is a very soft, smooth and easy to drink wine. Very “dangerous”, in other words.

This means the wine will accompany you without annoying you. It has everything in the right place.
It’s a sure bet that won’t disappoint.

It is, after all, a Douro wine, and, as we all know, it’s infrequent for a Douro wine to be less than good.

This wine was bottled in July of 2020 and counted on the intervention of the Kranemann Wine Estates team, the Hasso wine producers, which bought the Quinta do Convento de São Pedro das Águias in 2018.

In the words of the oenologist Diogo Lopes, this is a wine that highlights the typical Douro fruity aromas, resulting in a fresh and elegant wine.

But, enough talk.

Open it and tell us what you think of this Quinta do Convento.

Enjoy it, and then tell us how it went. Would that be ok?

Cheers from the team at Wome.
