Valdouro - Ruby

Valdouro - Ruby

Port

Surprisingly, the origin of Krohn Porto is Scandinavian, as two Norwegian cousins founded the port shipping company in 1865. However, the company currently is owned by the Portuguese Carneiro family. It is one of the few independent family businesses still standing in Oporto. A Ruby port is named for its distinct ruby color—its a young approachable wine that has aged for two to three years. It pairs wonderfully well with blue cheese, milk chocolate and berry-based desserts.

Valdouro - Tawny

Valdouro - Tawny

Portugal

Krohn Porto’s estate Quinta de Retiro Novo is located in Sarzedinho, which is a very small village in the Portuguese Rio Torto Valley. The area is very favorable for the production of quality Ports, because of the nature of the soil, the altitude, the locality and the slope of the vineyards. Tawny Port is often a blend of older-vintage wines, and spends a good amount of time in oak. Try it with dark chocolate, dried fruit or apple pie, and prepare yourself for a very pleasant surprise.

Valdouro - Rosé

Valdouro - Rosé

Port

Rosé Port is the newest kind of Port, only officially recognized since 2009. The Valdouro Rosé Port is a lighter drink with a pink color, and perfectly suited as a summer drink. It is fermented in a similar process to rosé wine. There’s a limited exposure to grape skins, thus resulting in the signature color. Because the fermentation occurs under low temperatures, a light, fruit driven wine is ensured. Preferably drink it cold (6-8ºC), and if you feel like it, combine it with almonds or charcuterie.

Quinta da Romaneira is one of the largest estates of the Douro region.

New owners took over as recently as 2004, and they have consolidated Romaneira as one of the elite wine producers of the region.
