Grape

Touriga Nacional; Vinhas Velhas

Very elegant and refined, a modern style that fully preserves the soul of the Douro’s native grape varieties. Aroma that harmoniously blends the great concentration of Douro reds in all their complexity. Berries, hints of rock rose, spices, exuberant violets and extremely fresh notes of basil and bergamot. The long maturation in barrels produced a wine with great aromatic elegance, where the scents of the Douro are not masked by excessive notes of oak. Very smooth and ripe tannins, fresh and aromatic, very elegant, with an unusual long finish.

At last, and dare i say not the least, producing the wines i´ve always dreamt of, gave me a new lease on life.


«In one of the most remote areas of the Iberian Peninsula, on the border between the Douro Superior and Beira Alta regions, it was among family that my passion grew for the aromas and smells of this land that shapes our character.?After coming into contact with many cultures of living and making wine, in various parts of the globe, I returned to the great Douro valley convinced that we have the potential to make the best wines in the world.?Out of respect for nature, due to the way we cultivate our vineyards, my wines reflect my experiences, which smell and taste of my land, of schist, damp granite, rock rose, wild flowers and fruit.?It is in my winery that I make wines with the character of our ‘terroir’, expressed through native grape varieties, which I instil with a style of their own and an international profile. This is my passion: wines from the great Douro valley.»


Grapes come from vineyards planted in the Douro Superior, at an average altitude of 350 meters, usually with more than 40 years of age, and planted in terraces with predominant exposure East / North. The vineyards are chosen, one by one depending of the vintage. We look for a selection of grapes that allows us to obtain full bodied wines, very aromatic and rich with great aging ability, gourmet character that represents the "terroir" of the Douro Superior in all its complexity.
