Quinta Dona Matilde

Quinta Dona Matilde – Vinhos, Lda.

Owner Barros family

Quinta Dona Matilde formerly "Quinta do Enxodreiro", one of the most famous and oldest properties of the Douro is where Barros Port wines were produced historically. It was bought by Manuel Moreira de Barros in 1927. He had married Matilde, the sister of his employer and later partner Manuel Almeida, and it was to his honor of his wife that he renamed the quinta. Dona Matilde is in fact a very old quinta, already marked on Forester’s map. Quinta Dona Matilde was sold together with the rest of the Barros Group to Sogevinus in 2006, but the Barros family has now bought the quinta. The Barros family is again the owners of the quinta.

Quinta Dona Matilde Vintages:1982 (Barros), 1996 (Barros), 2002 (Barros), 2007, 2009, 2011, 2016
