In 2019 Quinta do Noval acquired a second estate in Portugal’s Douro Valley: Quinta do Passadouro. Quinta do Passadouro dates back to the 18th century and has long been highly regarded for both its Ports and table wines. The property is in the Cima Corgo sub-region, close to the village of Vale de Mendiz in the heart of the demarcated Douro region. Since 1991, the estate has been well-run by the Bohrmann family (who also own a domaine in Meursault), and for a while, Dirk Niepoort was in charge of the winemaking.
Quinta do Noval’s Managing Director, Christian Seely, has this to say of the purchase: “The vineyard of Passadouro consists of two principal parcels. One parcel is in the Pinhão Valley [on schist], where most of Noval’s vineyard is situated, and ranks among the greatest vineyard terroir of the Douro Valley. The other parcel is in the Roncão Valley.” Seely adds that the Quinta do Passadouro brand and its staff will be maintained so that the longstanding reputation of the estate will continue under the new ownership.
