The Amorim family’s connection to wine dates back to 1870, through their first business in the production of cork stoppers for the Port Wine Cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Today it is one of the most prominent family groups in Portugal, extending its business in several countries of the world in different sectors of activity.
Since 1999, the fourth generation has been developing the wine business through the hands of Luisa Amorim, working in estates of excellence where the vine and wine have ancestral roots and a deep cultural sense: in the Douro, in Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo and now in Dão, in Taboadella, creating wines with an extraordinary character, coming from unique places.
Cradle of great wines with a classic profile and enormous longevity
A charming landscape of gentle slopes, among mountain ranges cut by rivers and pine and eucalyptus forests, where the past of noble houses and palaces full of history intersects with the dreams of hospitable and hardworking people. Here, sheltered between walls and woods, is the Taboadella vineyard, where the future of classic and unique wines is projected.
“Dão is for us one of the most emblematic and promising regions of the country, cradle of great wines with a classic profile and enormous longevity, a historic and unique terroir that not only demonstrates all the potential of Touriga Nacional and Encruzado, but also the traditional Portuguese grape varieties. We came to invest in a region that has a great history and that will certainly have a great future”.
