Wine & Soul was founded in 2001 by Sandra Tavares da Silva (Quinta do Vale D. Maria and Quinta de Chocapalha) and her husband Jorge Borges (then Niepoort, now Passadouro). The name Wine & Soul was chosen because the winemakers put their heart and soul into making wines that symbolize their lives. They bought a vineyard with very old vines of 2 hectares in Vale de Mendiz next to Quinta do Noval. From the first harvest, the couple have become among the icons of the Douro and are praised nationally and internationally for the charm and character of their wines that represent the unique terroir of the Douro region. In 2009, the Quinta da Manoella couple inherited a fantastic estate with mainly very old vineyards that are oriented to the south.

The Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas from Wine & Soul is made from 30 indigenous grape varieties that grow on a very old vineyard of more than 100 years old. Once the grapes are perfectly ripe, it is time to harvest. The grapes are very strictly selected and destemmed, after which they are crushed in the traditional way with the feet in lagares (large concrete vats). Crushing the grapes with your feet produces as much color as possible and less stiff tannins in the final wine because in this way few grape seeds are crushed that release these stiff tannins. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by no less than 20 months of aging in new (30%) and used (70%) French oak barrels.

The very complex Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas displays intense aromas of black fruit, cassis and plums on the nose. In the mouth ripe, round, balanced with aromas of plum, cassis, blackberries, dark chocolate, mineral and subtle spiciness with a graceful intense aftertaste. Perfect in combination with red meat and game dishes with strong sauces and hard cheeses. 95/100 Parker.
