What makes us unique:
Quinta do Convento has always been a legendary Alenquer (Lisbon) wine. It is deep ruby-red, crimson, and sometimes almost black colour and has a characteristic bouquet of black fruit (especially blackberry), as well as fig, vanilla, cedar, and sometimes cocoa overtones. Quinta do Convento red wine combines power and elegance, as well as concentration and fullness on the palate. Rather sinewy in style, Quinta do Convento clearly a classical wine with a tannic structure that provides excellent ageing potential.
The white wine produced at Quinta do Convento is citric colored having gold and green reflexes, and is characterized by a exquisite aromatic nose with notes of honey, nuts, citrus fruits and some toast.
In the mouth it evidences complexity with balanced acidity, conferring the wine a pleasant and persistent finishing.
The château team is conscious of the fact that they are following footsteps of more than five centuries of tradition, each period contributing whit technical innovations in the interest of quality and in order to faithfully reflect the terroir.
In spite the young vineyards, Quinta do Convento wines history and wine making tradition, are the living proof that only very demanding selection, and dedication along the entire process, may achieve great wines.
