Winery: Boeira

Quinta da Boeira was built by an emigrant named Manuel da Rocha Romariz, who returned from Brazil in the early 19th century. Knowing the Brazilian market, he registered as an exporter of Port Wine in 1850, using two trade names for the labels: ROMARIZ and BOEIRA.
These brands quickly won the consideration and confidence of consumers and distributors due to their quality, expanding to several markets, among which Portuguese, English, French and Brazilian stood out, among others.
In 1966, the property was acquired by an English family, the warehouses by a textile company and the wines were sold to a Port Wine exporting company.

In 1999 the property was put up for sale with the main interest of a contractor who intended to build luxury homes in a closed condominium.

Father João de Freitas Ferreira, director of a school in Vila Nova de Gaia, warned of the situation of the eminent possibility that the 3 hectares of the property could be transformed into massive construction, with the consequent destruction of its centennial grove.
Concerned and sensitized to the cause, Father João de Freitas Ferreira, integrating a group of ten friends, decided to acquire the property, thus protecting the centenary trees and the palace of the early 19th century.
For the acquisition of the property, a financial study was carried out with the division of investments into five phases:


FIRST PHASE
The transformation of stables and greenhouses into a multi-purpose hall with auditorium and the restoration of all paths in the gardens represented the initial phase of the project which, from the beginning, intended to transform Quinta da Boeira into a visiting room in the north of the country and, more specifically , in Vila Nova de Gaia.


SECOND PHASE
The recovery of the mansion, which was in an advanced state of deterioration, began, transforming it into offices and a luxury restaurant with a capacity for about 80 people seated.


THIRD PHASE
In order to attract tourists to the high elevation of the city of Vila Nova de Gaia, the largest bottle in the world was built, measuring 32 meters in length and 10 in diameter, thus allowing the creation of a tasting room and exhibition room to promote Portuguese wines, culture and gastronomy. It was also possible to adapt the room for the transmission of films in 3D, letting tourists know the different wine regions of Portugal.


FOURTH PHASE
With the objective of financially consolidating the entire project, Quinta da Boeira registered at the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro e do Porto (IVDP) in 2017, thus returning to the genesis of Quinta da Boeira in 1850, as an exporter of Vinhos do Porto, under the BOEIRA brand.


FIFTH PHASE
The project, in its fifth and final phase, concluded with the construction of a 5-star hotel, with 119 rooms and 5 suites, whose construction was based on the green system. The most up-to-date environmental techniques were implemented, such as the use of groundwater to supply sanitary tanks and automatic irrigation of about 3 hectares of the property, with photovoltaic and solar energy also being used, which allowed for remarkable savings and drastic reduction in carbon emissions, transforming it into an ECO hotel.
The most recent challenge was the acquisition of the C. da Silva family home, a name also linked to the export of Port Wines, designed in the 19th century by the architect Teixeira Lopes. Quinta da Boeira is a reference in wines of superior quality, namely in Port Wine, duly certified by the Institute of Douro and Port Wines and proudly marked with the knight seal on the neck, according to the guidelines that the Observatório do Port wine advocates for the defense of the Porto Denomination of Origin.
Each Quinta da Boeira wine is a unique experience, in which Wine and Art are intimately linked, having their maximum exponent in unique bottles and which are distinguished by their shape and aesthetics, such as Diamond or Decanter.

Keermont White Blend is made from 53% Chenin Blanc, 20% Sauvignon Blanc and 13% Chardonnay .


A polished light yellow gold color, this wine has a bouquet of citrus blossom with hazelnut, lemon grass and butterscotch undertones. The wine has a soft sweet entry with a racy linear acidity. Ripe citrus and stone fruit flavours evolve into a lovely lingering dry earthy finish. This is a textured white wine with layers of flavour. 


"Alex Starey is better known for his reds than his whites, but this cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 45% Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne (the last two included for the first time) is wonderful too. Very much a southern Rhône style, it's savoury and herbal, with notes of honeysuckle, stone fruit and citrus, deftly framed by oak. 2020-24"

Morambro Creek Chardonnay 2020
Morambro Creek Chardonnay is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.


Tasting Notes

Deep straw in colour. Concentrated citrus and white peach fruit flavours are complimented by delicate yeast and subtle spice aromas. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant fruit flavours, mineral characters and a good lingering finish.


Winemaking Report

Fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and gently pressed. The juice was fermented in French oak barrels (35% new, 65% aged). Various components underwent: a wild ferment, malolactic fermentation and extended lees contact to give the wine further complexity and flavour. Individual parcels were selected and blended, then filtered to produce this Chardonnay without compromising the purity of the fruit in both flavour and aroma.


Vintage Conditions

2020 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines. By all accounts it was a textbook vintage.
