our vineyards

We have approximately 17 hectares in two vineyards. Sardoal, next to the Douro River, has elevations above 150 meters and produces more concentrated grapes. Salgueiras, with elevations of up to 550 meters, has fresher grapes, with greater acidity.

The vineyards are between 15 and 30 years old, and are planted in corridors, by grape. This allows harvesting and winemaking to be done separately, according to maturity thus ensuring the best use of each variety. This gamut of grapes and altitudes allows for balanced cuts in every harvest. The end result is surprising wines of remarkable quality.

The principle grape varieties in our vineyards are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Sousão. There are also smaller quantities of Tinto Cão, Tinta Barroca, Marufo, Tinta Francisca and Malvasia Fina. Each wine is a combination of different varieties. This makes each of them unmistakable in its taste.
