The schoolyard

One of Vesúvio’s most beautiful and most peaceful vineyards is known as the Schoolyard Vineyard. Its vines stretch up the relatively flat valley, which runs away from the river and the railway line up towards the ridge-top. Tucked into the hillside is the old schoolhouse built to educate the children of the families who lived and worked on the estate. This vineyard has some of Vesúvio’s best Touriga Nacional vines, which with their elegant floral characteristics are an important component of all Quinta do Vesúvio’s Ports and Douro wines.

The quinta of all quintas – one of the wonders of the world
