Quinta Nova Nossa Senhora do Carmo

Quinta Nova Winery House - Relais & Châteaux

About the winery
The winery as a living heritage that we aim to preserve. With a history spanning more than 250 years, the Quinta displays a set of traditional white buildings, still built on different levels today, from where we can appreciate the original winery building dating from 1764, one of the oldest in the Douro region. Alongside the traditional architecture and buildings that are part of the estate’s history, in the first demarcated zone of the Douro, the economic importance of “Feitoria wines” (the Feitoria designation indicated the finest quality wines in the first demarcated region) was assumed from an early age.

History & Geography
With a history spanning over 200 years, Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo occupies over 120 ha of land, and has been listed since the first demarcation of the Douro wine region, in 1756, during the Pombaline era. The original wine cellar that dates back to 1764 and the 19th century manor house with a chapel (1765) are harmoniously integrated into one of the estate's hills. Owned by the Portuguese Royal Family until 1725, it became a “new estate” when two estates were merged. Several Portuguese families lived in the estate in the 18th and 19th centuries, during an important period in the agriculture of the Douro, and gave life to the vineyards and wine, fruit orchards, water mills built along the stream that runs through the estate and the old olive grove.
