Quinta das Honor is a small family owned estate the Douro Valley. Their wines are made in the traditional style, and they farm without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, etc--a real rarity in Port country. Things are just done as they have been for generations, resulting in a well-balanced port that combines delicate wood notes with rich aromas of mature fruit. Like all Tawny's, this wine is bottled for immediate drinking, so do your part!
