Soil Integrated production practices (sustainable agriculture with rational use of resources and ecosystems preservation). Own vineyards with native varieties were installed in the family Estate in 2000. The production has no irrigation and the harvest is manual, respecting the optimum maturation point of each variety.
Winemaking The harvest is done by hand and the grapes are transported to the cellar in small boxes. After destemming, crushing and pressing, it is decanted in a cold stainless steel tank. Afterwards, the completely clean must is transferred to other stainless steel tanks where fermentation starts at a controlled temperature of around 15ºC and is then transferred to new French oak barrels with a light toast, where fermentation continues until the end. The wine is kept in barrels with batonnage for a minimum period of 1 year. Before bottling it is transferred and has only natural stabilization and a slight filtration in order to maintain all its aromatic potential and structure. Does not contain products of animal origin.
Aging 12 months in new French oak barrels.

Kelman Wines mission is to produce high-quality wines with native grapes harvested on your Quinta, highlighting the typicity and gastronomic aspects of the Dão, integrating traditional winemaking practices with a modern approach for the best expression of their terroir.

The Vineyard
The Kelman family vineyard is located in the heart of the demarcated region of Dão, a plateau surrounded by mountain escapes. It is one of the oldest and most traditional wine-making regions of Portugal. The vineyard has 6 hectares of native grape varieties that were planted in the year 2000. The vineyard stands at 450 meters above sea level on a mild slope. Sandy soils of granitic origin provide very good drainage. The temperate climate of continental influence brings cool, rainy winters and dry, sunny summers. Daily temperature amplitude favors grapes with a good balance between sugar and acidity, the key to producing elegant and fresh wines with great aging potential.

Winemaking is a family business. They hope to share their vision of Dão, a place of elegant wines with plenty of aging capability and that evolve well over time. More than that: a beautiful region with friendly people that sing on the day of harvest, following the tradition of many generations. It is also a region in transformation, with an increased number of producers crafting great wines from grapes harvested in their parcels. They see ourselves in this journey and welcome you to join the ride.
