After 10 years of working in the main producers of the Dao region, the winemaker Lúcia Freitas, together with her husband Filipe Cruz, decided to follow her life project: take over her grandfather´s estate, Quinta da Mariposa, and produce the wines that she likes the most of the Dao Region.
The vineyard was planted in 1985 and since always treated like a garden. It is planted with the most typical white and red grapes of the region and it is placed in a land with big granite rocks and an overwhelming view of the highest mountain in continental Portugal, Serra da Estrela. Since a very young age she always participated in the harvest… starting by the hand picking of the grapes and ending with the foot treading in the lagar, all was made like a big family gathering. Therefore, they intend to follow the traditions, nowadays, the youngest still participate in the harvest, running in the fields and playing with the grapes!
