Quinta do Javali is a small wine property with 18ha dedicated to vines. It sits on the left bank of the Douro river, in the parish of Nagozelo do Douro, a place with vineyard tradition since the beginning of the production of Port wine for export, in the late 17th, early 18th centuries.
The property is comprised of a small quay in the river, which was simultaneously used as a wharf for loading the typical rabelo boats; as well as a small rustic house (cottage), fully rebuilt, which displays an inscription found in the door threshold dating from 1839. The typical and old Douro terrace walls in the property are witness to the history of the vineyard.
The North - East exposure/orientation of the slope of the property, as well as the schistose soil with vertical diaclasites, which allow the vine roots to penetrate to unthinkable depths, with a consequent complexity of benefits for the vine, provide to Quinta do Javali with exceptional qualities for the production of the finest PORT and DOURO DOC wines.
QUINTA DO JAVALI | NATURAL SERIES 2019 | LAIR UARACY ART 2020 | DOC DOURO
A project that Quinta do Javali encourages and disseminates promising young artists. Each year we will produce a new wine, always in limited edition and we will select a different artist to represent his art on the label. We challenged some artists to create a label after tasting our wine. This is the first step in a promising and innovative project. It is in our essence to believe and take risks. Being pioneers, never cowered us, on the contrary, it is a source of great pride to be able to pave the way for others to follow. Our ambition with this project is to put wine and art together, crossing borders, awakening knowledge, flavors and encouraging other young artists to fly higher. To inaugurate the project, we created our first biodynamic Orange Wine. This year it is a wine made on foot to maintain our traditions and with a 10-day skin fermentation. And the chosen art work was from the Brazilian artist Lair Uaracy. For its intense colors, the lightness and mainly for the unique character of his work. We conclude; that best represented the characteristics of the wine produced and the spirit of Quinta do Javali.
