The reason for asking is that if we could produce a list of Quintas and their geographic co-ordinates, we could then do interesting things with online and digital mapping tools. For instance, if you feed a co-ordinate into Wikipedia's GeoHack, you can get a page like which produces links to all the major online mapping sites, giving quick access to satellite photos and the like. A good example would be this for Quinta do Vesuvio.
This data could then easily be incorporated into . For instance the tasting note list could have a little globe which you could click on:

This would be quite helpful for people like me who can never remember where the Quintas are and also for anyone who just likes looking at the satellite photos of the Douro.
If there is a decent map, then this should be quite an easy task: reading the co-ordinates would probably just take an hour or so which is why I'm quite interested in it. If not, there are other ways (involving looking up the quintas on online mapping sites) but that would be much more time consuming.
