The Romariz Port Estate
The port house of Romariz was founded in 1850 by Manoel (Manuel) da Rocha Romariz. Manoel was a descendant from a well known Oporto family.

Over the years, Romariz developed business dealings in Brazil and other Portuguese Colonies (Africa and China), and to a lesser extent England. Historically, Romariz was known for wood ports, like Colheitas (single vintage Tawnies) and in top years vintage ports.

In 1966, the Romariz family sold their brand and business to Guimaraens & Co. (who own Fonsecca) and the business continued on. Some years passed by and eventually Fonsecca and Taylor’s joined forces. Today, Fonsecca, Talyor and Romariz share the same winemaker and facility in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Today, Romariz offers a wide range of Ports: wood, vintage, LBV’s and Colheitas. Their main markets are Portugal, Denmark and France. All grapes come from region #2, Cima Corgo, the heart of the best growing area along the Douro River. Romariz being a “Portuguese” port firm, adheres to a rich warm style of port wines.

Review:

"(aged in stainless steel and concrete) Vivid ruby. Spice-accented red and blue fruit scents are complemented by hints of candied licorice and cracked pepper. Offers concentrated bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors, along with a smoky mineral undertone that adds nervy lift and cut. Picks up a floral pastille quality on the energetic finish, which features fine-grained tannins and repeating florality. - Josh Raynolds"

"Ripe melon, pineapple, and hints of white flowers emerge from the 2017 Blanco Organic, which is an interesting blend of 60% Viura and 40% Tempranillo Blanco brought up in tank. Medium-bodied, with bright acidity and beautiful purity of fruit, it’s a smoking value that’s going to be versatile on the dinner table. This is another terrific house white brought in by Fran Kysela."
