Vintage Port da Costa is a renowned producer of high-quality vintage Port wines, based in the Douro Valley region of Portugal. The company has a rich history, dating back to the early 19th century when the da Costa family first began producing Port wines.
Today, Vintage Port da Costa is known for its exceptional wines, which are made from grapes grown in the rugged, mountainous terrain of the Douro Valley. The region's unique microclimate, with hot summers and cold winters, along with its schistous soils, contribute to the distinctive flavor profile of the wines.
The company produces a range of vintage Port wines, each with its own character and complexity. These wines are made from a blend of different grape varieties, including Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, and Touriga Franca, among others. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully selected to ensure only the highest quality fruit is used.
Once the grapes have been harvested, they are fermented in traditional lagares, or stone tanks, using the natural yeasts found on the grape skins. This traditional method of fermentation helps to preserve the unique flavor profile of the grapes and gives the wines their distinctive character.
After fermentation, the wines are aged in oak barrels for several years before being bottled. This extended aging process helps to develop the complex flavors and aromas that are characteristic of vintage Port wines.
Vintage Port da Costa wines are highly sought after by wine connoisseurs around the world. They have received numerous awards and accolades for their exceptional quality and unique character. Whether enjoyed on their own or paired with a fine meal, Vintage Port da Costa wines are sure to impress even the most discerning wine lovers.
