Quinta do Noval
About Quinta do Noval
Based in the Douro Valley, Quinta do Noval is amongst the most beloved Port houses in operation today, Quinta do Noval holds a special place in the hearts of oenophiles the world over thanks to their incredibly refined style of vintage Port.
Almost defiant in its approach to crafting exceptional Port, Quinta do Noval often does things a little differently from its peers. If they believe that they have wines of the quality and personality to join the ranks of their past vintage Ports, they will bottle it and declare it. They will do this even if it means, as is often the case, bottling only a few hundred cases, representing a tiny percentage of the potential total production of the Quinta.
Quinta do Noval’s Vintage ports celebrate consistent quality where all ports come from one vineyard. Whilst the 1931 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port was one of the most successful of the 20th century, the Noval Black marks a revolutionary change in the drinking port.
