Near Pinhão, about 100kms from Porto and on the river banks of the Douro we can find Quinta de la Rosa, which is owned by the Bergqvist family since 1906. It currently has 55 hectares of vineyards with the red grape varieties Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cão and Souzão and the white grape varieties Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega.
In 2011 Quinta de la Rosa underwent a complete refurbishment, which was being prepared for 7 years and ended in 2012. This remodeling included a new wine cellar, storage facilities with controlled temperature, an improvement in unloading and grape selection facilities, among others.
