Fine Port wines have been produced for the past nine centuries at the Senhora do Convento property in Tavora, Portugal. The impressive 12th Century Monastery still stands on the 150 hectare property overlooking a 27 hectare vineyard where the grapes for fine wines were originally grown by Cistercian monks. Today the monks are long gone but their legacy of crafting the finest port continues.
Senhora Do Convento sits above a beautiful vineyard in the heart of the Douro Valley, 100 km east of the UNESCO world heritage city of Porto, Portugal. Nestled into this harsh but striking region stands a Cistercian monastery whose thick stone walls have witnessed events of legend. Tales of ghosts living on the property are alive and well in the area, lending an air of intrigue to this hauntingly beautiful property.
Today a state-of-the-art gravity flow winery continues the tradition of crafting A quality, award winning Port and table wines for your enjoyment. We are proud to have Jean-Hugues Gros, award-winning winemaker as our vintner.
