Quinta da Gricha

Our home is the majestic Quinta da Gricha, a 50 hectare Grade-A vineyard, located on the south bank of the Douro river in the famous “Cima Corgo”.

About the winery
Quinta da Gricha is a special piece of Earth, even by the astounding standards of Douro terroir. Named for the natural spring (gricha) that feeds the north-facing vineyards, the quinta sits in a microclimate at 150 to 400 meters above sea level, with a wind exposure that naturally regulates humidity. Our oldest vines are more than 60 years old and yield diverse grape varieties which in turn produce wine of great structure and complexity. Our dedicated team of farmers are committed to practicing minimal intervention techniques, ensuring that Gricha terrior breathes in every drop of wine. What is this terroir? Johnny defines Gricha’s character in one word: “Tension”— a balanced dance of natural acidity, exuberant berry, and resinous pine and eucalyptus, supported by a mineral backbone that gives Churchill’s ports and wines the nerve that make them stand out.

History & Geography
own-river and up-the-mountain from the tourist trails, Gricha Vineyard House embodies the spirit of the Douro: breath-taking vistas, warm community, and wine and winemaking at its centre. At Gricha, our guests, much like our team of farmers, viticulturists, and enologists, know that great experiences take time and a bit of effort – and so they brave the windy road, look beyond the first hill, and embrace the quiet solitude of vineyard life — whether with a glass of wine, a dip in the pool, or a traditional meal in our idyllic orange grove. With just four luxury bedrooms tucked into a tastefully remodeled 19th century farmhouse on Churchill’s legendary 50 hectare vineyard, Gricha Vineyard House offers guests access to an intimate and personal experience of life on a working Douro winery.
