“Remontage” consists in pumping up the wine from the bottom of the vat in order to sprinkle the “cap” (grape skin and pips which rise to the surface). The process optimises the extraction of colour and tannins.

Quinta do Noval - Fine Ports Since 1715

Please, drink responsibly

The majestic hundred year old cedar which watches over everyday life at Quinta do Noval grows on a terrace overlooking an outstanding panorama of the splendid Douro valley.

With its powerful trunk firmly rooted in its native soil, Quinta do Noval’s lofty cedar surveys our daily commitment to preserving the Quinta’s natural heritage.

With its long, outspread branches pointing towards the horizon it diffuses a scent of resin and immerses our guests in a peaceful, shaded atmosphere which is ideally suited to tastings.

As a tribute to this emblematic conifer, a stylised image of its branches and fine needles embellishes the label of our eponymous Cedro do Noval wine.
