Also in this red van from Soalheiro, the alvarinho grape should not be missing! In addition to alvarinho (15%), the assembly consists of vinhao and pinot noir. A beautiful, lighter ruby red color. The wine shows a great balance between elegance and earthy aromas. Thanks to the addition of alvarinho, the wine has a pleasant fruity character. The wine has a wonderfully long-lasting finish.

Vineyard for 2019 Quinta de Soalheiro Oppaco Tinto

Quinta de Soalheiro is located in the northernmost point of Portugal, in the sub-region of the Vinho Verde area, called Monção e Melgaço. Protected by a mountain range in the north, the vineyards are ideally located for growing the Alvarinho grape, with just enough of everything: sun, heat and rainfall. It was these unique circumstances that led João Antonio Cerdeira to plant his first alvarinho vineyard here in 1974. João has since been succeeded by his children Luis and Maria, who have further developed and perfected the company. Everything is done here with a great sense of detail. The vineyards are cultivated organically and the winemaking process has only one purpose: to make pure and harmonious wines. Soalheiro has a great reputation both in Portugal itself and abroad.
