Vinification
Grapes used for Quinta Vale D. Maria Douro Reds come from all the oldest plots of the quinta, averaging some 60 years of age, and covering a broad spectrum of more than 40 different Douro traditional 
varieties. These have been carefully chosen after many years experiencing its incredible high quality results, and normally averaging 14° Baumé
Cristiano van Zeller, Sandra Tavares da Silva, Joana Pinhão and Mariana Brito
All our grapes were foot trodden in lagares for 
1 to 3 days before fermentation, and then fermented in any of the various vats for 7 to 10 days at temperatures ranging from 22° to 27° Celsius, with pigeages by hand. We then rack the resulting wines in new Allier French oak 225 and 300-liter casks from various coopers (Seguin Moreau, François Frères, Taransaud, Louis Latour and Berthomieu), where they go through malolactic fermentation. All wines are then carefully aged for 21 months in barriques (75% new and 25% one year old French oak), keeping all different fermentations completely separated until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines
