About Quinta da Devesa
Quinta da Devesa carries a long history. In 1844, the well-known Barão de Forrester, included this property in what was the first map of the Douro Demarcated Region. But the most important history of this property began in the last century, in 1941, when the Fortunato family acquired the property, thus starting a new phase of greater investment in wine production, with a special focus on Port wines. Later, the Douro DOC still wines also appeared, which reinforced the presence in the national and international wine market.
Quinta da Devesa continues today to be an independent family company, looking forward to the future, with presence in several international markets. The investment made in recent years has managed to bring greater recognition from wine lovers and critics. The result of all this is also visible through the huge number of national and international awards achieved to date.
