Artikel der Marke Quinta Monte d'Oiro
Located in the Lisbon region, Quinta do Monte d'Oiro is a reference since the 19th century. XVII in the production of remarkable wines.
It was acquired in 1986 by the gastronomic connoisseur José Bento dos Santos, who replanted the best plots - after several years of studies on soil and climatic conditions - with the grape varieties that best suited their designs to produce high-quality, European-style wines ("Old World"), which concomitantly were wines of exquisite gastronomic sense, with a profile eminently carved to accompany in perfect harmony dishes of a genuine regional cuisine, classic cuisine or haute cuisine. After the first years of consolidating a consistently high quality wine production, Quinta do Monte d'Oiro entered a new phase of its history from the 2006 harvest, launching a new image and wines from a conversion for organic farming.
Of the 42 ha of the property, only 15.5 ha were replanted with the Syrah, Viognier and Petit Verdot varieties, imported directly from their original regions in France, and with the Portuguese varieties Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.
There is a concern to produce grapes with low yields of production, increasing the oenological quality of the wines. As of the 2006 harvest, there were two wine families: the Quinta do Monte d'Oiro family and the José Bento dos Santos Originals family, wines produced by the producer.
