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 Tinta Roriz that has matured for months in 35% new French oak. It contains up to 12.5% alcohol and has a nice concentration with an intense taste and a good structure and takes a while to settle and will improve over the years. Beautiful fresh ruby red in the glass with fresh young aromas in the nose with black and red fruit on a very spicy background. In the mouth the medium bodied is very lively with well polished tannins present. A delicious glass and perfect with slow-cooked meats, roasts, stews and of course with a good feijoada or Portuguese stew.

FACT: Tinta Roriz is the name the Portuguese gave to the Tempranillo in the Dão and Douro.
