A beautiful Quinta situated high up in the heart of the Douro Valley. this is a dense, purple colour, redolent of fresh, red berry fruit, following through to a full bodied, soft palate with a long, dark fruited finish. The most popular pairing of vintage Port is with mature blue cheese, particularly Stilton. Decant at least two hours before serving, this is drinking now and will continue to evolve for the next 10 years.

Buy this if...you're looking for a special bottle as a gift or for yourself...

This Port is just excellent! Enjoy with Stilton, Cornish brie, double Gloucester and Cathedral extra mature Cheddar. Stephen

The Producer

Quinta da Romaneira was bought in 2004 by a group of friends including Christian Seely, who is known for his experience running the renowned Quinta do Noval. Since arriving in the Douro in the 1990s it had been Christian’s dream to own Quinta da Romaneira and restore the property to its former glory. The estate is situated in the Cima Corgo district in the heart of the Douro Valley.

The Winemaker

Grapes are still trodden by foot and fermented in stainless steel lagares. The wine aged at the estate for 20 months in large wooden barrels of at least 640 litres in size

The Region

The superb location, along two kilometres of the Douro River, provides ideal conditions for the production of high quality wines, both dry and fortified, from local varieties.There are 85 hectares of vineyard which have been replanted with the principal aim of producing dry wines and a small range of ports. The vineyards are planted principally with noble Douro varieties and all 80 hectares of red grapes are planted on schist terraces.

Fromage Fort

A brilliant recipe to use up odds and ends of cheese - your final wine choice will depend slightly on which cheeses you use but plump for lots of sweet, ripe fruit flavours and you won't go far wrong! Quinta Da Romaneira 2008 Vintage Port is a great and classic option.

Fig and Blue Cheese Tart

The ripe, salty tang of blue cheese contrast brilliantly with the luscious, dried fruit notes of fortified wines such as Quinta Da Romaneira 2008 Vintage Port.

Polenta Chips with Gorgonzola Dressing

A twist on the usual cheese board offering - this recipe combines more-ish fried polenta chips with a rich, creamy blue cheese sauce. Pair the salty Gorgonzola with a lush, fortified wine for the perfect contrast of flavours. We'd recommend Port.
