Quinta da Cabreira is a 150-hectare estate located in the Douro Superior in the parish of Castelo Melhor, within the municipality of Vila Nova de Foz Côa. This prize location on the left bank of the Douro River is home to 114 hectares of vineyards, 4 of which are planted in old vines while 110 are new.
Quinta da Cabreira was purchased by Quinta do Crasto S.A. as a part of an expansion plan devised in the late 1990s. In 2000 the land acquisitions necessary for this ambitious project began. The goal was to produce a wine that would be more international while still expressing the unique characteristics of the select terroir of the Douro Superior – this is the highest altitude (approximately 610 metres) and the driest spot of the whole Douro Valley.
