Quinta da Romeira has been producing wines since 1703 and is one of the most prestigious estates in the Bucelas appellation. The wines rose to popularity in early 19th century Britain when the Duke of Wellington developed a taste for the estate’s wines during the Peninsula Wars and took them back to London as an offering to George IV. They soon gained a following, with celebrity fans including Charles Dickens and Lord Byron. The Quinta was bought by Sogrape in 2018. They have invested heavily in the estate, improving the viticulture and putting the talented António Braga (of Azevedo) in charge of winemaking.
