DOURO wines - Quinta de Cidrô

Quinta de Cidrô is located at São João da Pesqueira, one of the most highly regarded areas of Douro Valley. Throughout the last 20 years, Cidrô has been transformed into an experimental-model vineyard for the entire region.

Having been subject to many studies and investigations, today the Quinta is considered a pioneer in the art of vertical vine plantation as well as the first producers of several foreign varieties. In virgin soils, cutting edge techniques were employed to plant 150 ha of the best varieties, creating one of the largest surfaces of single vineyard in the entire Douro Region.

In the most privileged location, international varieties perform equally well as the local grapes. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, and the adaptable Cabernet Sauvignon are some of the foreign varieties that here express their best qualities when vinified by the extensive winemaking know-how present at the Company.
