Passágem

These wines are a collaboration between the Bergqvist family of Quinta de la Rosa and their genius winemaker, Jorge Moreira (see below). A few years ago, they bought the Quinta das Bandeiras, an estate in the Upper Conga Valley, quite remote from their familiar locus in Pinhão. They are convinced that, once their new plantings have developed deep-enough roots, they will produce wines of equal quality but strikingly different character to the La Rosa wines.

Owner History:

Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present to Claire Feueheerd, Sophia's grandmother, in 1906 and has passed through the female line to Sophia. Claire's father, Albert, ran the family port shipping company, Feueheerds. Albert was a real pioneer and was one of the first shippers to make 'Single Quinta' port from La Rosa's grapes. He was responsible for building Vale do Inferno's vineyards with some of the highest, most impressive walls in the Douro. Starting in the early 1990s, the Bergqvist family were one of the first producers to take red wine production in the Douro region seriously. Quinta de la Rosa's wines, both red and white, have won many accolades in the press and are sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world.
