Owner José Manuel Bento dos Santos, an industrial chemical engineer, has an outspoken love for northern Rhone wines. On a unique piece of countryside 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 head 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 Quinta do Monte d'Oiro Touriga Nacional (the wine formerly known as Aurius "José Bento dos Santos Originals") is a Touriga Nacional with a touch of Syrah, aged for 16 months in 40% new French oak. The wine comes from a plot of only 1.35HA so very limited availability.

It comes in at 12.5% ABV. Elegant and fresh is sensually textured, tightly wrapped and beautifully crafted. A beautiful elegance of fruit, discreet floral nuances and very well integrated reminiscent of cherry bonbon, bitter cocoa and spices. In its younger years, certainly open in time so that it can breathe. A delicious glass and perfect with slow-cooked meat, roasts, stews and of course with a good feijoada or Portuguese stew.
