If you're a fan of Portuguese red wines, then this beautiful bottle will have you in raptures. There's a freshness coupled with real depth, texture, and complexity in this red that instantly singles it out as one of Portugal's best.

Low rainfall and soaring summer temperatures caused a potentially tricky vintage, but Mother Nature pulled it out the bag to produce this intense, complex delight with delicate minerality. Expect raspberries and strawberries and a hint of black pepper from this Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and Tinta Barroca blend.

Also known as rich, ruby red Portuguese elixir hailing from the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo, Douro. The three classic Port grapes that make this blend are grown at altitude to ensure refreshing acidity and maximum flavour. Elegant, velvety and complex.

The Producer

This historic producer, founded in 1952, is named after the legendary Porto matriarch Dona Antónia Ferreira. Affectionately nicknamed 'Ferreirinha' by her countrymen, the house pays homage to her memory and was the first house in the region dedicated to making light wines. Casa Ferreirinha is 520 hectares of vineyard in the Douro in all of its three sub-regions: Lower Corgo, Upper Corgo and Douro Superi

The Winemaker

The winemaking is headed up by Luis Sottomayor, who restrains the Douro’s natural exuberance to produce wines that have a freshness allied to a lovely depth and texture, as with our Vinha Grande.

The Region

The selected grape varieties were sourced from the Quinta do Sairrão estate located at a high altitude in the Cima Corgo region. The mountainous vineyards here have schistous soils with vines planted either in vertical rows or on traditional "patamares" (terraces). The selected plots are ideal for optimal maturation thanks to the hot days and cool evenings bringing out the fresh fruit character of the grapes.

Feijoada

A robust, flavoursome Portuguese pork stew that's not for the faint-hearted. This needs a full, ripe red wine to stand up to the porky flavours, our Portuguese Casa Ferreirinha Vinha Grande Douro Tinto is exactly what the sommelier ordered to go with this dish.

Mushroom Risotto and Caramelised Onions

The wholesome, rich and earthy flavours of mushroom risotto pair perfectly aged and oaked reds. As this risotto is baked it gives you the perfect opportunity to crack open a bottle of your favourite Douro red from Casa Ferreirinha and let it breathe before serving.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Skirt needs a relatively well-structured red to soften the meat flavours. Match a Douro red for its rich flavours and good structure needed to pair with this steak.
