Quinta do Vallado em 13º no Top 100 da Wine Spectator

22 de Novembro de 2012 por Hipersuper
A mais mediática lista de vinhos de 2012 foi divulgada.

No top 100 dos melhores do mundo, de acordo com a mais influente publicação de vinhos do mundo, a revista Americana Wine Spectator, está a Quinta do Vallado.
A marca é, no que respeita aos produtores nacionais, o mais bem posicionado da lista, assumindo o 13º lugar com o vinho Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional 2009. “Um motivo de orgulho para a região do Douro e para os vinhos portugueses. O mesmo vinho, a mesma referência e uma casta portuguesa no topo da lista das preferências daquela que é considerada a bíblia dos vinhos, por três anos consecutivos”.
O Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional 2009 é, aliás, o único vinho de mesa a conseguir este feito. “Acima do 20º lugar não figura mais nenhum vinho de mesa português”.
A empresa explica que o prémio comprova a solidez da sua estratégia de internacionalização, que contemplou recentemente um passo relevante – o lançamento do Vallado Adelaide Tributa. Trata-se de um Porto centenário, produzido a partir de uvas pré-filoxéricas, do qual foram produzidas 1.300 garrafas, disponíveis para venda em Portugal nas melhores garrafeiras e em mercados internacionais de grande montra, como a Rússia, a China, Angola e Brasil, por um preço que ronda os €3.000.

The best app about portuguese wines for IOS and Android devices.
sales.gomes@portuguesewinecellar.com
Mission
Promotion of excellent portuguese wines worldwide.
Difusão e promoção dos excelentes vinhos portugueses a nível mundial.
Description
Portuguese wine is unique. It is good. It is excellent. It is among the best in the world.
The proof of this is in the prizes and distinctions it has won in all the international contests it has entered in the last few years.
The quality has improved, demand and international recognition has increased and the value of exports has grown, year after year.
To make known the country that produces this quality product, its producers, the national castes, the enotourism which exists from north to south of the country, is the mission of the PWC Portuguese Wine Cellar application.
To be present on the new emerging mobile platforms is, for us, a national obligation. To reach the largest number possible of admirers, of professionals, of general consumers, through the apparatus with the biggest growth rate in the last 3 years; smartphones and tablets.
This is why we have developed the Portuguese Wine Cellar which will be present in iPad, iPhone and mobile phones and tablets with an Android system.
To reach the largest number of users possible the application will be launched in English and Portuguese. Other languages will also be considered later.

4 Lisbon Restaurants Not to Miss

Cervejaria da Esquina


IF I say that I saw the future of Portuguese cooking in a martini glass, you might conclude that I was having drunken visions.
Not at the meal and moment in question: when a server at the chef José Avillez’s brilliant restaurant Belcanto, in Lisbon, set the second in a series of amuse bouches before me...

WE meet the places we wind up loving much the way we meet the people we fall for: on purpose and accidentally; at precisely the right moment and exactly the wrong time; in the highest of spirits and the lowest of moods.

POLIPHONIA_TINTO

g_foto_home

Henrique Granadeiro is a successful businessman who was born and raised in the southern Portuguese province of Alentejo. Although his professional life took him to Lisbon, he has always felt a strong bond with the region of his birth.  He sat on the Board of the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation, producer of some of the Alentejo’s finest wines, and played a role in the creation of iconic brands “Cartuxa” and “Pêra Manca”.
In 2001 he decided to pursue his passion for wine by  launching a project in Reguengos, in the heart of Alentejo and not far from his birthplace. Since then he has poured his knowledge and passion into creating the wines that bear his name.
