ProfileThe lush dark fruit and velvety violet profile of this wine tell you that it’s certainly made from the incredible grapes at Quinta da Zaralhoa vineyards. Not many of our wines are oaked, but this one is in a beautiful way. As you sip this wine you’ll be brought to a land where chocolate and cigars are friends and all is okay.
Grape GrowingNon- certified organic. Vines are south and southwest facing which allows protection from the intense sun and a complex but delicate and low alcohol profile. Manual harvesting.
WinemakingManual harvest with pre-selection of grapes in the vineyard, after destemmed grapes ferment in traditional lagares with foot treading. artial aging in French Oak Barrels of 225 liters for 2 years.

More About the WineLuis and Ana entered the world of wine 15 years ago when Luis’s parents, Tony and Gabby, bought a beautiful property in the heart of the Douro Superior. The property was filled with abandoned vineyards and recovering them became the family’s passion. Today, along with their young daughter, Rita, and new baby, Luisinho, they are committed to making some of the best wine the Douro has to offer.
