About Quinta de Cottas
Located near Pinhão, Quinta de Cottas is a 10 hectare estate that enjoys the conditions of excellence for the production of Douro and Port wines. In order to preserve the region’s genetic heritage, its shale soils are only populated with the most traditional varieties of this unique region.
Some of the old vineyards reach 70 years of age and consist of vines mixed with about 16 different varieties. New vineyards were planted in clearly defined areas, breaking with the tradition of mixing different varieties on the same plot. The red grape varieties present are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Sousão and Tinta Francisca, and Viosinho, Gouveio and Arinto in white grapes.
The combination of these two types of vineyards, coupled with a low production, results in grapes of a unique profile and character, allowing the production of high quality wines with a distinct personality that express the unique terroir of this estate.
