About our Wine Vinegar
Matured in 550L old port pipes for over 30 years with a vinegar ‘mother’ and regularly topped up, we believe this to be the first wine vinegar to be made from fortified wine to be bottled.
Made with traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão and Tinta Roriz.
Pale tawny in colour and in flavour, the vinegar has strong acidic notes with a touch of balsamic port undertones on the nose. It has very intense flavours with bright, fresh acidity at the end on the palate. It rests on its port heritage but isn’t at all sweet and viscous like balsamic vinegar. More reminiscent to wine vinegar with a touch of port!
Delicious in salad dressings matching perfectly with the our Extra Virgin olive oil. Great for marinades and in homemade mayonnaise.
About the Vineyard
Quinta de la Rosa has been in the Bergqvist family since 1906, although they have been in the port trade as shippers under the family name, Feueheerd, since 1815. It currently has around 55 hectares under vine and produces around 50,000 litres of port and 160,000 litres of table wine each year. Since 2002, Jorge Moreira, one of the finest wine makers in Portugal, has been making wines, vinegars and oils at La Rosa.
