One of the Douro Valleys finest vineyards, Bomfim is the heart of some of the companys greatest Ports, having provided wines for Dows Vintage Ports ever since it was acquired in 1896. The estate is situated in the centre of the best wine-producing area known as the Cima Corgo, which offers an ideal balance between the relatively wet Baixo Corgo to the west and the intense heat of the Douro Superior to the east.
In the good years when Dows does not declares a Vintage, the best Ports of Quinta do Bomfim are carefully selected and bottled as Dows Quinta do Bomfim Vintage Port. These wines are exceptionally good. They will tend to mature a little earlier than the very rare Declared years, but can be every bit as good as some other Vintage Ports.
