A fabulous wine from a female superstar of the Douro- we have a lot of love for Ana and her wines! This Rosé will give any Provence Rosé a run for it’s money. Bright, vibrant fruit balanced with delicate floral notes, it’s just as great as an aperitif as it is with a range of foods.
Vegan/veggie, sustainable, low sulphur, minimal intervention, female winemaker.

Ana Rola was born and bred in the Douro and knew from an early age that she wanted to be a winemaker in her home land, the Douro Valley. Through growing up in the region, she has unbeatable terroir knowledge and a sense of originality which really helps her overcome the challenges in creating wines that stands out from the crowd.
The estate where Ana makes her wines, Quinta de Remostias, dates back to the 18th century and is located in Peso da Régua, right in the centre of Douro Valley. In 2014, Ana decided to leave her post as head wine maker at a large prestigious Douro winery to go it alone. She explains, “after so many years doing what I love for others, I think it gets to a point that we think ‘why not do it for myself.’” For Ana, it’s about making wines “that really tell you where they came from. Wine from specific vineyards with minimal intervention. Wines that are true & honest. We believe in what we do!’” & we do too!
Grapes come from two different plots; the vines in the first have an average age 10 years and the other plot’s average age is 30 years. Quinta de Remostias has 8 hectares of vines that are planted on schistose soil slopes, facing south and west.
100% Touriga Nacional. All grapes are de-stalked and pressed. The juice is decanted in to 2,500L stainless steel vats and macerated for 24 hours at 8° c.
Delightfully pale in colour, it’s a unique rose that’s a “breath of fresh air” compared to what we usually know Touriga Nacional to be. Full of vibrant fruit along side touches of white flowers & violets- the delicate side of Toruiga Nacional. Extremely elegant, vibrant & with a long finish which makes it a very well balanced rosé on the palate.
Great with spicy food in general, sushi, oriental food & rich, bold flavours. A great wine to share with friends too or have instead of your usual Provence Rosé.
