In Ribeira de Oura, between Vidago and Chaves, Trás-Os-Montes region, in the north of Portugal, we find an unique place for the production of wine, Quinta de Arcossó.

Situated in a region with deep wine traditions that go back to the pre-roman occupation of the Iberion Peninsula, its vineyards are installed in a convex slope with a southern sun exposureat 400 meters altitude with a 20% steep.

In its granitic soil grow vineyards species carefully selected and totally adapted to the region. An adega projected and built to express all the potential in the grapes and minimize mechanical operations.

In each bottle of Quinta de Arcossó unique wines are found packed with complexed aromas and topped by dense and long aftertastes.

Quinta de Arcossó pratices a minimalistic oenology procedure based in a through surveillance that seeks to express the entire grape´s potential.

The selection of the grapes and the harvest timing is done in accordance with the perfect maturation point, grape variety sorting, identifying at the same time homogeneous micro zones in each of them. The harvest is done manually, transported immediately to the adega where the grapes are submitted to a second screening process in a sorting belt with perforated screen.
