Quinta do Noval House

SINCE 1715 TILL YOUR DAYS

The first land records of Quinta do Noval are in 1715. Property of Rebello Valente family for over a century, given by Marquês de Pombal, was acquired by a famous business man José António da Silva, in 1894, after the devastation by phylloxera. José António da Silva, promoted the restructuration of Quinta do Noval, by renewing buildings and re-growing vineyards. But, it would be his visionary son-in-law, Luiz Vasconcelos Porto who has revived the Quinta do Noval, by transforming tight lodges into larger lodges, allowing a better use of the soil with better sun exposure, in benefit of the vineyard quality.

 

The wine’s declaration in 1931, Quinta do Noval Porto Vintage (probably the most remarkable wine of the XX century), the recognition and expansion of the brand, has projected the company to a spotlight inside the most dignified Port wine houses.

 

In 1958, Quinta do Noval was the first house to launch a ‘Late Bottled Vintage’ Port, with its1954 LBV. It was the achievement of a creation of a new Port wine category, that was been discussed for a long time.
