Quinta de la Rosa
The small, family run Port house Quinta de la Rosa are the crafters of our Booths Port. Situated in Northern Portugal with breathtaking views across the Douro Valley, the quinta has been in the Bergqvist family for over 100 years.
Originally given as a christening gift to Sophia Bergqvist’s grandmother Claire, Sophia and her father Tim restored the family business in 1988, with a dream of becoming a leading Port producer in one of the world’s finest wine growing regions.
Edwin Booth, current Chairman and former wine buyer at Booths was Quinta de la Rosa’s first customer when they launched their vintage 1988 Port:
The fruit was plum and raspberry but it had a touch of spice, and the finish was long and gently warming,
Immediately impressed, he ordered 20 cases and Quinta de la Rosa have supplied Booths ever since – we’re celebrating a 30 year partnership with Sophia and family in 2018.
Our Finest Reserve Port is one to enjoy all year round, but even more so with a slice of blue cheese or a touch of dark chocolate.
