Wilson Daniels Welcomes Portugal Winery

By June 23, 2021Connecticut, Top News

Fine wine importer Wilson Daniels added Quinta da Côrte to its national portfolio, marking its first venture into Portugal. Situated in the heart of the Douro Valley in Cima Corgo, the 19th-century winery is a family-owned producer of historical significance crafting terroir-driven wines. With the first plantings recorded on the estate in 1814, Quinta da Côrte remains committed to producing indigenous grape varietals – namely Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca – across its 25 hectares of classification A vineyards. Owned by the Austruy family, whose historic Provence winery Commanderie de Peyrassol joined the Wilson Daniels portfolio in April, Quinta da Côrte prizes sustainable viticulture to encourage the natural balance between the vines and the land. Wilson Daniels launched the full range of dry red wines and ports from Quinta in May, including Princesa 2018, the flagship Quinta da Côrte 2016, Porto Vintage 2015, Porto Late Bottled Vintage 2015, Porto Tawny 10 Years Old and Porto Tawny 20 Years Old.
