Drink a glass of wine overlooking the fields and vineyards
In wine tasting, there are senses that speak, such as the look, the smell and the taste. To enjoy the wine, we approach the elementary aromas and tastes, as a basis for harmonies at the table, without forgetting the history, from the earliest days until today. In addition to learning more about the culture of Portuguese wines, you will also learn about the different varieties that exist in the different wine regions of Portugal. Here one lives the wine!
QUINTA DA BARROCA
Quinta da Barroca wines
Quinta da Barroca wines are made from Portuguese native grape varieties and show what is best extracted from the terraces of our region. From a wide variety of existing varieties we have to highlight the fine Malvasia, Chardonnay and Folgasão varieties that can make fresh and fruity wines of excellence. Also highlighting the Touriga Nacional despite its low production, plays an important role in the blends used in our wines, provides structure and body to the wine, with high tannins and concentrated black fruit flavors. Touriga Franca lighter and more fragrant than Touriga Nacional, which adds refinement to the wine.
