- Other Info:
- The Bergqvist family have been making port since 1815. Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present for Claire Feuheerd, Sophia Bergqvists grandmother in 1906. The family port shipping company, Feuheerd, was sold in the 1930s but La Rosa was kept and run by Claire. In 1988 Sophia and her father, Tim, decided to restart the family business and launched Quinta de la Rosa as a top quality port producer onto the market place. Starting in the 1990s, the Bergqvist family were one of the pioneers in taking red table wine production in the Douro region seriously. Quinta de la Rosas wine has won many accolades in the press and is sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world. The arrival of winemaker Jorge Moreira in 2002 has further improved the quality of the winemaking at La Rosa and their 55 hectares are now used to produce top notch port and table wine in a ratio of 2:1.

Fragrant, fresh and minerally dry white with bright citrus and clean lemony fruit. Made by ace winemaker Jorge Moreira.
- 'Dense, dry, appetising and tangy, this is a wine with more interest than most at its price level, and I would expect this Douro white to benefit from just as much bottle age as white burgundy. Portuguese whites really do deserve attention, not least from theose with an eye for a bargain.' Jancis Robinson, '50 Great Portuguese Winses', Financial Times, July 2012. Chosen by Olly Smith as part of his 'Top Great 50 Wines of Portugal' April 2013.
