Who are the “Douro Boys”?

In order to promote the speciality and the quality of the Douro wines together, five producers joint a group which is generally known as the “Douro Boys”.

  • Francisco Ferreira and João Ferreira Alvares Ribeiro – Quinta do Vallado
  • Dirk Niepoort  – Niepoort
  • Jorge, Tomás and Miguel Roquette – Quinta do Crasto
  • Cristiano van Zeller – Quinta do Vale D. Maria
  • Franciso Olazabal – Quinta do Vale Meão

The five companies work together in order to make the quality and the high potential of Douro Wines known in the world of Fine Wines, and they succeeded in very short time. Wherever wines of the Douro Boys are presented, connoisseurs fall in love with the individuality of the aromas, the minerality, the intensity of soft tannins and the complexity. The Wines from the Douro are considered as a revelation to most of the wine lovers in the world.
