Quinta de Terra Feita

Quinta de Terra Feita - Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman

Owner Fladgate Partnership (Taylor-Fonseca Group)

This quinta belongs to Taylor.

Taylor’s famous old estate of Terra Feita forms a spectacular amphitheatre of terraced vineyard planted on the western slopes of the Pinhão River valley. It is situated in the heart of the original 1756 demarcation and has been supplying Taylor’s with superb grapes for nearly a hundred years and was bought in 1974. Together with those of Quinta de Vargellas, the wines of Terra Feita form the backbone of the legendary Taylor’s declared vintage ports. Since the beginning of the century, small amounts of Terra Feita wine have also been bottled as Single Quinta Vintage Port.

Quinta de Terra Feita Vintages:1914, 1982, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1991, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2001, 2005, 2008
