The Douro region
The Douro Valley
Located in northern Portugal, the Douro River Valley is famous for the cultivation of olives, almonds and particularly grapes for making Port wine.
The Douro region is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. The still red wines of the valley have also achieved high recognition around the world.
Quinta do Pégo is located in the Douro Demarcated Region, or more precisely, in the sub-region of Cima Corgo, near the town of Pinhão. It is also located in the heart of the area classified as World Heritage by UNESCO.
The grapes grown in this area are considered of the highest quality, and thus are used for making Vintage Ports, Late Bottled Vintage Ports and Douro DOP reds with elegant character.
Quinta do Pégo is without a doubt one of the most superb vineyards in the Douro River Valley. The scenery from the main terrace, at approximately 138 meters above sea level, is spectacular.
According to historical documents, production of wine at the Quinta can be dated back to 1548, and most probably to the Roman occupation. Today, the high quality Quinta do Pégo Port wines and Douro reds are sold all over the world. A must-see place with must-taste wines.
