This Rio Torto quinta was acquired by the Prats & Symington partnership specifically for our DOC Douro joint venture. It is planted with Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, the two most important varieties for fine Douro red wines.

The property complements the other Prats & Symington vineyard, Quinta de Roriz, the latter a north-facing vineyard on the banks of the Douro, while Perdiz is a west-facing vineyard situated deep inside the Rio Torto Valley.
