Quinta de S. José
Quinta de S. José is a family project that began in early 1999 by the will of the João’s father, Ruy Brito e Cunha, due to the excellent location of the houses in the Quinta, practically on the side of the river. The houses were restored, respecting the framing and typical materials of the Douro region.
In 2005, João Brito e Cunha bought to his family the entire area of vines, bushes and trade-mark of Quinta de S. José to devote to the project of production and marketing of branded wines from Quinta de S. José. The estate has an area of 10 hectares of vineyards and the property integrates the Douro Valley, area classified as "World Heritage Site".
Early in 2011, together with his wife Sofia, decided to assume guest tourism area, in order to create synergies between the two projects: Touris and Wine
