The history of Quinta do Infantado is long, since its creation in 1816. Established for Infante D. Pedro, future King D. Pedro IV of Portugal and D. Pedro I of Brazil, it has been in the possession of the Roseira family for over a century. It is located about 4km from Pinhão, in the unique terroir of Vale de Gontelho, a micro region that has long been famous for the quality of its wines.
For six generations the “Roseira” from Covas do Douro live with passion and enthusiasm a life of vineyards and wines.
The first two generations only cultivated vines. With the purchase of Quinta do Infantado, João Lopes Roseira started the production of fortified wine.
In 1979, his sons Luís and António, based on the concepts of terroir and vigneron, started estate bottling their Porto Wines, making the family’s dream come true. With this innovation, Quinta do Infantado became the estate grown and bottled Porto Wine, thus breaking the monopoly of Vila Nova de Gaia’s négociants.
After the death of Luís and António, their heirs continue in search of the highest quality and maintain the path of innovation in tradition.
