Quinta do Infantado, meaning "domain of the prince", was founded in 1816 by the son of the Portuguese king Jaoa VI, prince Dom Pedro IV. At the end of the 18th century, the estate was sold to João Lopes Roseira, whose grandson, also known as João, was in charge. Half of the Quinta consists of old walled terraces, and the newer part is formed by modern patamares. Exceptional to other Port companies, Quinta do Infantado has always used as few pesticides as possible. Keeping the weeds free is done in such an environmentally friendly way. Besides Port, they also make some great red wines and the 2008 Infantado is the best known.

The 2008 Reserve comes from more than 80-year-old vines. It is a blend of the typical Portuguese grapes the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and the Tinta Roriz. The wine has had upbringing for 17 months in used French oak barrels. Despite the relatively modest oak treatment, we are talking about a solid wine with oak tones but these are wonderfully integrated. Great to drink now but can safely stay in the cellar until 2028+. 8,799 bottles and 212 magnums have been produced.
