Artikel der Marke Alvaro Martinho
Álvaro Martinho, born and raised "exclusively" in a village called Covas do Douro from an early age that goes into the vineyards.
In 1997 he is integrated into a team of agronomists with the responsibility of modernizing and making viticulture professional in one of the most emblematic companies in the sector - Real Companhia Velha. He is responsible for Quinta das Carvalhas and here, as he says, he learned a lot of what he knows today and he has reached out to viticulture.
It builds family life in Cumieira and it is in this village of Baixo Corgo that it has its viticulture heritage with about 10.5 ha. Mostly they are very old vines with an excellent location - southern exposure, altitude between 200 and 350 meters and very poor sloping soils. Maquia and Mafarrico are the names of their wines. Of very limited production these wines accurately reflect the elegance and finess of this terroir.
