Established in 1716, Quinta do Vallado is one of the oldest and most famous “Quintas” in the Douro Valley. It once belonged to the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, and still belongs to her descendants.
Recently, Quinta do Vallado decided to increase its area of vineyards, having chosen the Douro Superior as the most favorable location to do so. Quinta do Orgal, located in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, was acquired. On this new estate, in 2015, an extension to the Wine Hotel at Quinta do Vallado was inaugurated – Casa do Rio.
With only 6 rooms, Casa do Rio is the ideal retreat for full immersion in the heart of the Douro Superior, one of the World’s most outstanding, dramatic and imposing territories. It is a unique hotel, built entirely out of wood and strategically located between 40 hectares of organic vineyards, with an unforgettable view over the Douro River.
Guests have at their disposal several outdoor activities, on land and in the river, along with home-cooked meals with local ingredients, several wine-related activities and a mesmerizing infinity pool overlooking the Douro River.
