The will of one family can overcome all obstacles. When Joaquim Calem inherited Quinta da Ferradosa, situated in the best area of Douro Superior, the land was dry, remote and uninhabitable. Fulfilling his father’s will, he rebuilt the old house, nurtured and extended the vineyards and extracted some of the most fascinating red wines among the ones proudly produced by the region.

Grape Origins
From some plantations with more than 50 years of age, with a mixed plantation of many varieties, showing the true Douro old Vines.

All our grapes are foot trodden and fully fermented in lagares for 7 to 10 days at temperatures ranging from 20° to 25° Celsius. We then rack the resulting wines in new Allier French oak 225 liter casks from various coopers (Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Nadalié and François Fréres), where they go through malolactic fermentation. All wines are then carefully aged for 15 months in barriques (75% new and 25% one year old French oak), keeping all different fermentations completely separated until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines.

Alcohol content





Quinta da Ferradosa Douro Tinto is the fruit of a vineyard that is so diverse in grape varieties as it is in its soil types. This creates a wine, which is very concentrated on the nose and in the mouth reveals black fruits like plum and black cherry allied to pine notes. The tannins are present, and bring to the wine an incredible structure. The wine is then balanced by a marked freshness, making this Quinta da Ferradosa a very elegant wine.
