Quinta da Colmaça - Douro Valley, Portugal
Bordeaux vineyard manager and wine maker Claude Gaudin is also passionate about port wine, such that he owns a small Quinta in the Douro Valley. The Quinta da Colmaça is comprised of 12 hectares of vines in the Cima Corgo, considered the best part of the Douro Valley. The average age of the vines is 25 years, and the Quinta is ranked as a Class A vineyard. Here Claude produces small amounts of exceptional Late Bottled Vintage and Vintage Porto and his gem, the barrel-aged single-vintage tawny or Colheita port.
