Contiguous with Quinta do Vesúvio, the family’s largest company-owned vineyard, Quinta do Vale de Malhadas is owned jointly by brothers Paul and Dominic and their cousin, Rupert. Over 100 hectares of the original wild scrub on the estate has been preserved and designated as a conservation area by the Symington family.
The entire 32 hectare vineyard has the maximum ‘A’ classification. A small proportion of the vines are mixed plantings over 50 years old; whilst the remainder is planted in varietal batches of the Douro’s classic grape varieties. This vineyard produces exceptionally powerful, rich and intense wines.
