“We began producing wine with Alvarinho grapes in 1998, in
Monção and Melgaço. Currently, we produce wine from three white grape varieties (Alvarinho, Loureiro, Avesso) and one red grape variety (Alvarelhão) in three regions of the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region. (…)
…but our variety of choice is Alvarinho, in which we have invested more time and devotion, seeking to take full advantage of its natural characteristics and potential. Also, we produce wines from other regions, such as Douro, Dão, Beira Interior and Açores.” – Source and photo: Anselmo Mendes
The Azores wines we import from the winery originate from Terceira Island, from the UNESCO Heritage site called Biscoitos. This volcanic wine region is super-tiny, the total wine-producing area is currently only 9 hectares.
