Quinta do Cume

Provesende, Portugal

Quinta Do Cume is the culmination of Jorge Tenreiro’s dream along with a passion for the Douro River. The vineyard is located just outside the village of Provezende, in the Cima-Corgo wine growing district, a historic village on the right bank of the Douro River in the heart of the Douro wine region. This demarcated region is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The rugged terrain, the schistose soil, the proximity to the water, the sun exposure and the high altitude are some of the features that enables us to achieve our goal; to produce the high-quality wines that express the greatest potential of the region.

Douro Valley Region can date its wine making past all the way to 1754.

The Douro valley consists of deep valleys surrounded by mountains, terraces and between them some small forest lots (also UNESCO protected), which extend across the Douro River and its tributaries. The climate conditions of this particular area are characterized by cold winters and very hot and dry summers and, moreover, are under the strong influence of the damp west winds coming from the Atlantic. The small wooded areas help to store this humidity. The numerous wine terraces feature steep slopes and a pronounced tendency to ideally absorb light and heat from the sun. The terroir provides the best conditions to cultivate real quality wines.
