The vineyards and the winery are in a privileged location on the left bank of the Douro River. A 1758 landmark from Marquês do Pombal can be seen near the vineyards, with about 9 hectares, located in shale soil, between 300 and 400m altitude.
The winery and vineyards, owned by the family, are located in Douro Demarcated Region, at the sub-region of Baixo Corgo. The first date about the wine making and caring of the vineyard, in the family, started at 1846. Over successive generations everyone’s focus was in the caring of the vineyards in a traditional way and with minor interference, allowing the plant to express in all its wholeness and with sincerity in the terroir where it was cultivated.
In 2010, after visiting several wine regions of the world, tasting and assessing their wines through international contests this wine was created as a way to express the terroir, the love and hard work of theis forefathers in the caring of the vineyards.
