Producer infos

1758 was the first year that Vicente’s family harvested and produced wines in the oldest demarked wine region in the world, the Douro Valley. Since those humble beginnings in the 18th century, Vicente Faria Vinhos today continues the family tradition and heritage of producing exceptional wines in the oldest "terroir" in the world.


Douro Red wines range in style from light and fruity to lush and smooth to dark and dense with flavors of mature dark fruit, with herbal and schist.

A softly textured, jammy wine, this is full of broad red fruits with light tannins. It has touches of spice as well as an open texture of immediate drinkability.


The Douro Valley has a unique soil, composed mainly by schist, and an extreme climate, where the summer is intense, reaching temperatures as high as 50°C (122°F), and the winter is very severe, with temperatures with negative degrees around the minus 7°C (20°F). As so, the vines of the Douro Valley are very unique, they have been able to develop very long roots trying to search for water in the soil.

Food recommendation for Vicente Faria Vinhos 2019 Animus Red Douro

Made by Vicente Faria, this is always a reliable, great-value and a real customer favourite. Spiced, jammy, dark plum and bright blue fruits feature on a round, full-bodied palate, kept fresh by bright acidity and remarkably moderate alcohol. A lovely drop with steak, burgers or chops. If you’re looking for a bold wine to go with steak or any kind of red meat in sauce, this is a cracker for only €7.80. Try this too if you’ve never had Portuguese dry red wines as there’s great quality and value to be found there so if you like this at a fiver, there’s plenty more to try.
