Quinta do Javali is a small wine property with around 20ha, 10 of which dedicated to vineyard planting. It sits on the left bank of the
Douro river, in the parish of Nagozelo do Douro – S. João da Pesqueira,
a place with vineyard tradition since the beginning of the production of Port wine for export, in the late 17th, early 18th centuries.
The property is comprised of a small quay in the river, which was
simultaneously used as a wharf for loading the typical rabelo boats; as
well as a small rustic house (cottage), fully rebuilt, which displays an
inscription found in the door threshold dating from 1839. The typical
and old Douro terrace walls in the property are witness to the history
of the vineyard.
The North - East exposure/orientation of the slope of the property,
as well as the schistose soil with vertical diaclasites, which allow the
vine roots to penetrate to unthinkable depths, with a consequent
complexity of benefits for the vine, provide to Quinta do Javali with
exceptional qualities for the production of the finest PORT and
DOURO DOC wines.
