Quinta do Javali
Quinta do Javali is a family-owned business established in 2000 with the main purpose of producing and trading high quality DOC Douro and Port wines.
Using traditional techniques, António Mendes produces wines of natural quality. The excellent location of this 20ha vineyard, schistous soil, North East facing terraces, an altitude of 150-300m and the use of selected grape varieties (Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Sousão) allows him to produce complex powerful wines yet elegant and fresh.
Quinta do Javali has a short portfolio of premium and super-premium Douro wines. Now and then, when Nature grants some unexpected grapes, António Mendes decides to bottle some limited editions of quite different wines: a Touriga Nacional, a Tinto Cão, a Special Cuvée and most recently an iconic white made with red grapes. A few other surprises are hidden in the barrels of his cellar and we never know what to expect! Quite extraordinary as well is the collection of Ports, with some young and old tawnies and a few rubies where is not missing the jewel of the crown, the Vintage Port.
