About Delaforce

The Delaforce family have been involved in port making since 1834. They rapidly became known as one of the leading port wine companies based in the Alto Douro in Portugal. They have developed a reputation for outstanding blending and ageing skills.

Appellation: Douro

The Douro valley is the home of Port production and is one of the oldest demarcated wine regions in the world. The vineyards follow a band of Schist along the valley rising up in steep terraced slopes from the river. Upstream lies Spains Ribera del Duero. Increasingly, unfortified wines are produced here, but it is really for great vintage port that the region is known.

Grape Type: Touriga Nacional

Touriga Nacional is best known as forming the back-bone to the very best Port. However, it is increasingly used for dry reds, not only in the Douro Valley but in regions such as Ribatejo. The single varietal Touriga Nacional, when blended with other indigenous or international varieties from Quinta do Alqueve, demonstrates how far Portugal has come in producing rich yet elegant wines with immediate appeal but longevity.
