Quinta do Romeu dates back to 1874 when Clemente Guimarães Menéres had the vision for his family to produce some of Portugal’s greatest wines and olive oil. The family resides in the district of Bragança (in the northeast side of Portugal), and has a beautiful estate that sits in the most northern and eastern area of the Douro wine region. Their utter commitment to the harmony of their project is truly spectacular, as they seek balance between their crops, the environment, their people, and their economy, being ‘aware of the feet on the ground and the divine in heaven.’ A certified organic (since 1997) house in their entire production (about 25 hectares of grapes, and 120 hectares of olives); conscious and practicing the benefits of zero additives to wine and minimal additions of sulfur; avoiding all international varietals and only focusing on the local indigenous grapes (where Touriga Nacional in this area shows an intense floral component from the unique shale soils); Romeu is making some of the cleanest and most beautiful dry reds that we have found in Portugal. All grapes for the Romeu Tinto come into the cellar for manual selection and sorting, as the stalks are then completely removed and followed by a gentle foot crushing, with slow and natural yeast fermentation in big granite lagares. No filtering or fining takes place, and the finished wine full of expression and spice. Aromas are youthful and intense coming from the glass, loaded with red fruits and a beautiful floral character. Balanced acidity on the palate accompanied with fruity persistence and soft tannins, make for a very elegant and approachable young wine that is extremely versatile on the dinner table.
