The Quinta do Côtto estate has 70 hectares of vineyards that are already mentioned in the first documents related with the implementation of vineyards in the Douro valley.

The existing manor house is a large and elegant building from the 18th century, built upon an older building from the 15th and 16th centuries, whose remains can still be seen. There are still some ruins from the Middle Ages in the back of the house, that an old tradition claims to be dating back to the establishment of the Montez family in the region, even before the birth of the nation in 1140.
