Independent Douro firm Sogevinus has strengthened its position in the still wine market by acquiring Quinta da Boavista from the Lima Smith partnership

The 80ha historic estate was part of the original Douro wine region as it was delimited in 1756 by the Marquis of Pombal. In the 19th century it was owned by the Baron of Forrester.

Quinta da Boavista is located in the heart of the Cima Corgo subregion, on the right bank of the Douro. 36ha of the property are planted to vines (Donzelinho, Tinto Cão and Touriga Nacional varieties), which lie on hand-built, 8m-high schist terraces.

‘With a historic legacy in the Douro and following the strategy of consolidating still wines, we believe that the acquisition of Quinta da Boavista will decisively strengthen our portfolio of DOC wines, particularly in the premium segment,’ commented Sergio Marly, CEO of Sogevinus.

‘Quinta da Boavista has been very successful in recent years in the development of internationally recognised wines and our expectation is to continue to produce great wines here.’
