    The VZ 15 Gerações Douro Tintois a wine with great aromatic complexity of red fruits from the Douro. A powerful, full-bodied wine, resulting in an explosion of fruit aromas, such as raspberries, blackberries and cherries. On the palate, it shows perfect structure which results in a delicious finish.

    The first members of the van Zeller family arrived in Portugal at the end of the XVII century. The present van Zellers in Portugal are all descended from Arnaldo João van Zeller, who arrived in Portugal in 1720 and married Ana Francisca Henckel, already the 5th generation in the port wine trade. After some 400 years, the current owners of Van Zellers & Co.are the 15th generation in the Port and Douro wine trade. To celebrate this, theVZ 15 Gerações Douro Tinto(meaning 15 generations) was created from various old vineyards in the region. It reflects the different "terroirs" that have made up the greatest Port and Douro wines for many centuries.

    Treatment in the cellar

    The grapes were harvested by hand and crushed by foot in the traditional way. Fermentation took place at a temperature between 22 and 27°C for 7-10 days, after which malolactic fermentation took place in one-year old French Allier oak barrels, and also in stainless steel barriques. The wine matured in these barrels for about 21 months before the different grape varieties were blended and bottled for final consumption.
