Old Vine

The vineyards span over 250 acres throughout the regions of Cima-Corgo and Douro Superior. The soil of the region is comprised of schist stone which is as genuine as the wine it produces.

The climate is exceptional due to, on the one hand, the singular geography and disposition of the vines and on the other hand, the surrounding climates –Mediterranean and Atlantic climates are combined harmoniously thus creating a suitable climatic site for growing grape.

The soil of the region is comprised of schist stone which is as genuine as the wine it produces, divided in small terroirs with different physical and chemical qualities between them; thus each terroir has a unique and defined personality. This abundance of climatic influences and different soils define prolonged stages in the vine growth cycle. The growth will be complex and delicate, key to the potential quality of the wines in this area.
