The collection of quintas have collaborated to make just 750 magnums of Douro Boys Cuvée 2011, a red blend using wine from a “particularly expressive” cask at each of the five wineries in the group, which are Quinta do Vallado, Niepoort, Quinta do Crasto, Quinta Vale D. Maria and Quinta do Vale Meấo.

The releases will be auctioned by Christie’s wine auctioneer Peter Mansell at a birthday party on 13 September at Regua’s Aquapura Douro Valley Hotel.

The Douro Boys special releases will be packaged into fifty lots ranging from single bottles to 120-bottle parcels, with nearly every lot containing something extra, from an evening with Dirk Niepoort, or two tickets for a football match of FC Porto accompanied by the soccer enthusiast Tomás Roquette.
