Quanta Terra

In the late 1990’s Celso Pereira challenges his friend and fellow winemaker Jorge Alves to create a small boutique winery to better represent the wines from the “Tua” valley, one of the most important tributaries of the Douro valley river complex. Armed with a pocket full of dirt and extensive knowledge of the area, its climate, and its extensive patrimony of grapes, they put forwarded their first wine – Quanta Terra Grande Reserva in 2003, sourced from an old vineyard whose benefit used to belong to one of the main Port wine houses.  The project relies on ultimate quality and expression rather that quantity.

Today, Quanta Terra produces uniquely appreciated wines with the same mind-set that established this project more than 20 years ago.

In 2015 and after being challenged by their friends from the U.S.A., the first Pouca Terra red wine was released and today is vastly appreciated by many as one of the best values form the Douro.
