Reviews / Restaurant

Nestled deep in Portugal’s Douro (or golden) Valley are an array of wineries all specializing in the region’s famous port wine. Just a few hours east of the port city of Porto, the Douro Valley is a picturesque landscape dotted with riverside cellars, restaurants and scenery, a stretch of which has been voted one of the world’s most beautiful roads for driving.

 

One such cellar sits atop a hill where the Douro River feeds into the Tedo River, hence the name: Quinta (or farm) de Tedo. This particular winery dates to the 18th century and has been in operation ever since. Thirty-seven acres of vineyards course over the hillside, producing grapes awarded the highest class (“A”) by the Instituto do Vinhos do Douro e Porto. (Fewer than 2 percent of Douro Valley’s vineyards have been awarded this designation.) The vineyard also became a certified organic farm in 2011, priding itself on a healthy ecosystem of vines and farming practices

 

Qutina do Tedo is owned by two people who hail from the world’s most respected wine regions: Bordeaux, France, and the Napa Valley, California. The couple combined their experience and knowledge to produce heavenly ports wines, red wines and olive oils, which can be tasted during the quinto’s daily tours and tastings.

 

The adjacent Bistro Terrace serves lunch and dinner overlooking the Tedo River. Quinta do Tedo also is a bed and breakfast, welcoming guests in any of the five bedrooms, plus access to activities such as kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking and swimming in either of the two rivers.
