Winery Philosophy: To take the most from the Alvarinho grape and from the terroir.
Reguengo de Melgaço means land of the royalty. The name comes from the fact that the estate belonged to the Portuguese royal family on the XVI century.
As the property once belonged to aristocratic feudal families, the Melgaço population used to pay the tithe based on its production. This is the reason why you can find some very large “lagares” and “canastros” existing in the Quinta.
