Quinta da Cheira is located in the parish of Mazedo 100 meters from the Palácio da Brejoeira. A small area of vineyard in cordon was the first to be planted in 1990. The selection of rootstocks, the geological structure of the land, the microfilma typicality of the Alvarinho grape vatiety, and the realization of mini vinification were fundamental to acquire the experience necessary for the creation, in 1997, of the wine brand Quinta da Cheira Alvarinho.
With an almost artisanal production philosophy, it has its own vineyards. We limit our production to achieve a remarkable quality and despite the of being a small company, family owned, it is important to say that our wines, keep the original taste of Alvarinho, minimizing artificial modifications. Thanks to the combination of traditional production methods, modern equipment and an ideal terroir, we obtain excellent wines with class and high value. Premium, complex and persistent wines which do not saturate and invite you to repeat. Wines that unlike other Vinho Verde wines, acceptable custody time 10 years.
Our wines have a mineral structure, characteristic of the land and of the hill country overlooking the river, with a microclimate that gives them its own characteristics.
Thanks to these qualities all our wines are attractive to different consumers that are looking for a distinctive and fresh nectar.
The fruity and delicate aroma, the good structure that results from its dry extract and the persistent flavor in the mouth, are the qualities that stand out when the wine is drunk at a temperature of 10 to 12°C.
