Buy the Quinta

Shaker Ridge Vineyard is once again offering our entire production from a field of mixed Portugese varietal grapes planted in 2005 (“the Quinta”) for a single fixed price of $1900. The varietals, which can be picked together or on up to 4 separate days to capture the individual peaks of ripeness of the different varietals, include (in decreasing order of expected yield) touriga nacional, tempranillo, tinta cao, souzao, and tinta amarela. The varietals are planted in proportions such that a field blend would make a suitable port-style wine, but can also make a lovely dry red wine. The fixed price entitles the buyer to the full production of the Quinta, whether higher or lower than the ~1.4-ton target, though there is some price protection on the downside. Please see “Pricing and Services” tab for more details.

If the Quinta is not sold to a single client by June 1, 2012, then the three most abundant varietals making up the Quinta–touriga nacional, tempranillo, and tinta cao–will be made available for sale on a conventional per pound basis. Clients can go on a wait list for these varietals prior to June 1, 2012. See “Pricing and Services” tab for more details.
