Owner José Manuel Bento dos Santos, an industrial chemical engineer, has a strong love for northern Rhône wines. On a unique piece of landscape, 70km north of Lisbon, 15ha of vineyards are ORGANICALLY maintained to grow perfect grapes with an extremely low yield of 20-25hl per hectare. With the support of Grégory Viennos (former head winemaker at Chapoutier and Cos d' Estournel), exceptionally beautiful wines are produced that have now found their way into royal cellars and the best European and American restaurants.

Monte d'Oiro 'the golden hill' is a reference to the hill on the Quinta that takes on a beautiful golden glow when the sun shines over it. The winery is located in the Vinho Regional Lisboa appellation.

The Ex Aequo is a blend of 75% Syrah and 25% Touriga Nacional which has matured for 18 months in 40% new French oak. This great wine is the result of a partnership between José Bento dos Santos, from Quinta do Monte d'Oiro, with Michel Chapoutier and is only made in the best years. It combines complex aromas of ripe fruit and a pronounced hint of licorice and shows ripeness and sobriety, with smoked notes, minerality, black pepper and cloves. Beautiful structure on the palate, but super refined with a remarkable freshness to promote breadth and aromatic complexity. An incredibly stylish and refined wine that can best remain quietly in the cellar for a few years. You will certainly be rewarded for this. This 2019 is the successor to the 2017.

Vineyard for 2017 Quinta do Monte d'Oiro Ex Aequo

This wine region in Portugal, about 50 kilometers north of Lisbon, has been known for its great terroir since the 17th century. In the 1980s, Quinta do Monte d'Oiro came into the hands of José Bento dos Santos, originally an industrial chemical engineer. He combines his passion for quality wine and gastronomy and has received many awards in both areas, both at home and abroad. The 20 hectares of vineyard are organically farmed. Naturally, local grape varieties have been planted such as Touriga Nacional and Arinto, but also the best global varieties such as Petit Verdot and Tempranillo (tinta roriz). The influence of the Atlantic Ocean and the limestone and clay soils give this area its unique terroir. Graça Gonçalves learned winemaking from her father, among others, and played a major role in the switch to organic production at Quinta do Monte d'Oiro.
