This wine is produced in Rui Robredo Madeira’s winery in Sar Joao da Pesqueira, from a selection of grapes from the best vineyards in the Upper Douro.
Castello d’Alba was the first wine he launched in 2000, and Madeira has always wanted it to reflect his experiences and vision of a new Douro that combines cutting edge winemaking with native grape varieties, creating its own modern and innovative style.
Castello d’Alba emerges from the new wave that has transformed the Douro Region forever—at least as it was once known. Today, it is one of Douro’s leading brands, and is features in the best restaurants and hotels throughout Portugal.
"This wood-aged wine is rich, packed with tannins and a solid structure. It has a spicy character giving density and aging potential. It is a full wine, with black fruits still vivid and forward. Drink from 2025." The Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points Best Buy
