Artikel der Marke Quinta dos Roques & Quinta das Maias
Located between Mangualde and Nelas, in the place of Abrunhosa do Mato, Quinta dos Roques is well the example of the spirit with which the new Dão is being built. From the early Roques, more than a century ago, the vine and wine are part of the daily life of this family, although for a long time the production satisfied little more than the consumption needs of the house.
Currently Quinta dos Roques has forty hectares of modern vineyards, which are distinguished from the others by the rationality of the systems of conduction and by the quality of the grapes produced. About 75% of the area is occupied by red varieties, where Touriga Nacional (40%), Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro Preto, Jaen, Tinto Cão and Tinta Pinheira dominate; The remaining 25% are white varieties, where the Encruzado (40%), Malvasia Fina, Bical and Cercial prevail.
