‘I’m very ambitious with these red wines from the Douro,’ says Christian Seely, managing director of Quinta do Noval. ‘I believe that high quality reds and whites can give a new lease of life to the Douro and deliver to drinkers some really thrilling wines.’
Speaking at a tasting of the latest vintages of the quinta’s still wines, it’s clear that Seely has a vision for both the winery and the future of this region of Portugal – best known for its fortified wines – in the face of climate change and global warming.
