Fonseca has belonged in the first rank of Vintage Port producers since the nineteenth century. Its Vintage Ports are noted for their luscious fruitiness which develops great opulence and complexity with age.
TERRA BELLA WAS THE FIRST PORT TO BE PRODUCED ENTIRELY FROM ORGANICALLY GROWN GRAPES.
Fonseca was one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in the Douro valley. An area of its flagship estate, Quinta do Panascal in the Távora Valley, was converted to organic viticulture in 1992 and today its Quinta de Santo António in the Pinhão Valley is entirely certified for organic production. Fonseca has also developed partnerships with other growers practising organic viticulture in the Douro Valley.
