Its Origins

In 1764 this bowl-shaped property nestled into the fold of the Upper Douro valley had been given the name Quinta de Roriz, and it has been producing wine ever since. Like most of the historical Douro estates, Roriz has always been known for its Porto but Roriz was one of the first producers to export its wines to Europe, thanks to particularly enterprising ownership. Starting in 1815, the estate was owned by a member of the van Zeller family until the estate was acquired last year by the Symington wine empire, currently the largest landowners in the Douro. Today, Quinta de Roriz is distributed under the Prats and Symnington or P + S banner.

What The Critics Say

89/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Produced from the vineyard of Quinta de Roriz, this wine is the equivalent of a Bordeaux second wine. Its tannins and open fruitiness are both designed for early drinking with attractive red berry fruits and a soft texture. Drink from 2022."
