Quinta de Covela

Quinta de Covela straddles the rugged terrain where two of Portugal’s best-known wine-producing regions now meet. Downstream, rugged granite marks the landscape of the Vinho Verde region. Upriver, the hot, slate-layered earth is what gives Port wine its heart and soul.
The estate dates to the 1500s, but has undergone several re-births – the most recent of which was in 2011 when the current owners rebuilt the estate’s old team, including long time winemaker Rui Cunha. The estate has a unique micro climate almost Mediterranean in its feel. This is ideal terrain for the local Avesso and Touriga Nacional grapes which are the cornerstone of production at Covela.
Since the 1980s Covela wines, all assemblages of Portuguese and international grape varieties, have been synonymous with innovation, quality and individuality.

Solar de Serrade

Solar de Serrade was built in the seventeenth century and owes its wine tradition to its terroir; the quality of the land and its fine sun exposure. It is well known that before the Solar was built, an English trading post had already been established to sell the light-red wines from Monção – wines that the Duke of Chapelet as well as the Baron of Forrester considered easily capable of competing with the most famous French harvest. Today the Solar de Serrade is one of the largest private estates for the production of Alvarinho variety. This wine is produced with this single grape varietal, one of the most prestigious Portuguese white varietals for the production of wine. It is an elegant and exuberant wine. Respect is given to the uniqueness of this variety, a gift of nature, produced from old vines dating back from the 80’s.

Anselmo Mendes

Anselmo Mendes began making Vinho Verde wines using Alvarinho grapes in 1998, and he now produces wine from three grape varieties in three Vinho Verde regions: Alvarinho in the Minho Valley, Loureiro in the Lima Valley, and Avesso in the Douro Valley. His favorite variety is still Alvarinho though, which he makes in a beautifully rich, layered style. The winery is in the Minho Valley, a hub of experimentation and research, where Mendes works to make each wine a faithful expression of the land. The wines were brought to the U.S. a few years ago, and are now widely available in major markets.
