TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A beautiful golden amber color, called tawny after a type of owl whose brown brick feathers resemble the shade this sweet Portugal wine takes on after it is aged in oak barrels.

It has a nutty, caramel-like aroma, reflecting the oak and toffee notes it takes on as you drink it. This Douro delicacy owes its flavor profile to the slow oxidation it undergoes, giving it a very balanced, yet deep and complex taste.

PREPARATIONS AND PAIRINGS

If you insist on having this sweet delight at the start of your meal (and we won’t judge), it goes well with both mature, hard cheeses, and softer, buttery ones. We suggest our Beaufort, or our Camembert de Normandie.

An incredible dessert wine, the Porto Quevedo Tawny pairs excellently with an apple cake, or a coffee cake as a meal ender.

A LOVE LIKE WINE

Oscar Quevedo and Beatriz Morais Quevedo are a match made in wine heaven, with both hailing from families with long, rich histories of growing grapes and making Port. Oscar’s family got their start as far back as 1889, when their ancestor, Abel Gouveia Costa planted the first vines in the Valongo dos Azeites in S. João da Pesqueira. It has since expanded to new estates through the generations.

Beatriz’s family, on the other hand, has roots along the Douro River, in the Carrazeda District. Her family owns Quinta da Alegria, which the Quevedo winery uses.

Oscar worked as a lawyer and administrator in the Registry Office, and Beatriz was a doctor in the local hospital. But they eventually decided to settle down in S. João da Pesqueira in the late 70’s. The call of wine making was too strong, though, and they eventually fell deeply in love with the art, increasing production area in the 80’s. And in the 90’s, they put up the winery we all know and love today.

Store unopened bottles horizontally in a cool, dark place, ideally between 12 and 15°C. Once opened, store the bottle upright in the fridge. Opened bottles can be stored for up to three months.
