Owner José Manuel Bento dos Santos, an industrial chemical engineer, has an outspoken love for northern Rhone wines. On a unique piece of landscape 70km north of Lisbon, 15ha of vineyards are ORGANIC tended to grow perfect grapes with an extremely low yield of 20-25hl per hectare. With the support of Grégory Viennos (former chief winemaker at Chapoutier and Cos d'Estournel), exceptionally fine wines are produced that have 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 Appelatie Vinho Regional Lisboa.

The 2017 Reserva is a Syrah with a few percent co-fermented Viognier that has matured for 16 to 20 months in 40% new French oak. Produced from rigorously selected grapes with a yield of just 19hl per hectare. The wine is balanced and elegant with a beautiful intensity and power bundled together in this wine. Beautiful balance in fruit tones, spiciness, use of wood with an impressive length in the aftertaste. A topper with grilled meat, stews, game, matured cheeses.

Vineyard for 2017 Quinta do Monte d'Oiro Reserva Tinto

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.
