The Romariz house was founded in 1850 by Manoel Rocha Romariz. The Romariz brand has always been known for the high quality of its Port wines. Its main markets were, at first, the domestic market, Brazil, Portuguese colonies and England. In 1966 the family Romariz retired from business and sold the brand to Guimaraens & Cª firm. At the end of the 1980s the Romariz was bought by a British group that has developed this prestigious brand and conquered new markets.
Notes on Viticultural Year and Harvest
The winter before the 2003 harvest was very wet. Flowering took place in late May, with warm and bright time, under conditions regarded as one of the best in years. The first two weeks of August provided the intense summer heat that often precedes a great vintage port. The second half of August was cooler and two days of rain perfectly timely, ended up favoring the ripening of the grapes at the end of the month.
The time of harvest in September was warm and dry, and the yields were uniform for all castes, ensuring balance and complexity in the wines. The producer notes highlight the very intense color and the large amount of tannins released by the skins during fermentation, as well as powerful fruit of young wines.
