History & Geography
The Távora River winds northwards through a narrow steep sided valley, flowing into the Douro some 4 kilometres west of the town of Pinhão. The northern end, where the valley widens before opening onto the Douro, has long been prized as a source of the finest Port. Prized above all were the wines of one particular slope on the steep right bank of the Távora in the parish of Valença do Douro, known as Panascal. Quinta do Panascal is Fonseca's flagship estate. As well as being an important contributor to the blends of the classic Fonseca Vintage Ports, for over thirty years Quinta do Panascal has also produced distinctive single estate Vintage Ports made exclusively from the best produce of the property.
