The Quevedo Port brand only started in 1991, but for generations before, the great grand parents of Oscar Quevedo Jr. has been doing wine for a long time. On Thursday, October 18 at 7pm, deVine welcomes owner Oscar at the store as he presents his family’s white ports, tawny ports, ruby port and vintage ports in this special sit-down port tasting. There are some gems to be tasted along with discussion and fun banter.

Porto Quevedo is part of a new generation of small family wineries based in the Douro. For many years, these families were growing grapes, and making Port wine, for merchants based in Vila Nova de Gaia. Now they are marketing their own brand.

In order to assure the best grapes year after year, we started to extend our vineyards up to the 100 ha, as we currently cultivate in the rough sub-regions of Cima-Corgo and Douro-Superior, where the Douro traditional varieties prevail.

It’s not everyday you get a winery owner in Edmonton to talk about their product, so book your spot real soon to avoid disappointment.
