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. In the district of Bragança (in the northeast side of Portugal), the family has a beautiful estate that sits in the most northern and eastern area of the Douro wine region. A strong, truly spectacular commitment to the harmony of their project leads them 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.’ Since 1997, they have been certified organic 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 Tourgia 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. Romeu's 'Moinho do Gato' is the Menéres family’s freshest example of their Douro reds. All organic and handpicked grapes (predominately Tinta Barroca, and a blend of Tourgia Nacional, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, and Sousão) come into the cellar for manual selection and sorting. After the stalks are completely removed, they are followed by a gentle crushing, with slow and natural yeast fermentation in giant lagares and then the fruit is crushed by a vertical press. No filtering or fining takes place, and the finished wine is expressive and delightful. Ripe red fruits and spice are showcased on the nose, and the palate follows with a beautiful smooth yet vibrant attack. Great persistence of red fruit shine through, along with integrated grape tannin, fresh acidity and playfulness, and a beautifully balanced finish.
