Without doubt it is one of the most beautifully situated quintas in the Douro Valley. Since January 2000, Quinta do Pégo has been owned 50% by AMKA and since September 2003 Quinta do Pégo has been owned 100% by AMKA who is in charge of the whole project. Quinta do Pégo owns an area of approximately 33 hectares - approximately 30 hectares are planted with vines. The land is classified in group A, which is the absolute best group.

This port has been produced by Rozès’ winemaker Manuel Henrique and consultant Wouter Pienaar. The grapes for the port (Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão) come from the old vines, which were on the quinta’s vineyards, when the present owner took over the quinta.
