Família Hehn

Vineyards located at 700m altitude on a gentle slope exposed to the southeast. Soils derived from metamorphic series of schist with quartz outcrops. Sandy-sandy texture with some stoniness. The grapes, harvested in 20 kg boxes, were gently crushed, without destemming, in a pneumatic press and the must was immediately pumped into stainless steel fermentation vats, where fermentation of the base wine took place. The wine was then bottled and placed in a fresh cellar for the second fermentation according to the classic method. After the ageing in bottle the wine was “dégorgement à la glace”. Aged in stainless steel vats for about 3 years.
Aged in bottle on lees for more than 36 months Bottling date: 2nd September 2016
Date of last dégorgement : July 2020

Hehn & Meireles

We are the Hehn Family, for many years linked to the Távora-Varosa Region, the region par excellence for sparkling wines in Portugal. From here and from our German origins comes the passion for sparkling wines. Our wines are created in Quinta da Seara, São Cosmado, Armamar. Situated on the slopes of the Rio Tedo, which flows into the Douro, facing south-east and at an altitude of 700 metres, this property is a unique terroir for the production of white and sparkling wines. The quinta has been in the family for several generations, with me, the current owner, viticulturist and winemaker, Marcos Hehn Pinto da Silva, being the fourth generation. The first vintage we bottled was in 2005 and today, 13 years later, we know that the wines from these southern Douro highlands have incredible ageing potential. We use the traditional castes of the region, white and red, from which we highlight Cerceal Branco and Gouveio, but we also wanted to show that our land welcomes foreign castes. For this reason, and also honouring our German origins, we planted Riesling from Mosel, which has given us great pleasure.
