A and D Wines

A&D Wines was named the most revolutionary wine producer by Portugal's leading wine magazine VINHO last year due to their innovative Vinho Verde. A&D are Alexandre & Dialina Gomas, technical engineers with a great love for wine. You can immediately see that technical precision in the extremely healthy vineyards and very clean winery in the renovated Quinta de Santa Teresa. The wines are made from native varieties such as Avesso, Arinto and Malvasia Fina, with minimal intervention. Result: incredibly pure wines with a lot of grape authenticity, expression and freshness.

A&D Wines makes wine in the Vinho Verde DOC appellation. The vineyards are located in the sub-region of Baião, right next to the Douro area. In this warmer microclimate, the grapes obtain a particularly aromatic concentration for Vinho Verde.

Alexandre & Dialina are well aware that the best grapes come from healthy vineyards. Healthy vineyards arise automatically if you treat nature well. Therefore, they protect natural water sources by leaving other natural vegetation intact. In turn, this vegetation is kept in check by grazing cattle, which ensures natural fertilization. Synthetic products and extermination are not necessary. This approach produces ripe, aromatic grapes, which are not artificial in the cellars. With minimal intervention, but utmost precision, wines are made that express landscape, grape and climate.
