The old vineyard of Quinta da Pellada is our greatest genetic heritage, where a large ampelographic collection has been planted, representing the varieties always present in the vineyards of the Dao Demarcated Region. We have identified, reproduced and vinified some of these indigenous varieties which in recent decades, for various reasons, sometimes qualitative, sometimes productive, have lost expression in the region and in the country. In order to recognize and interpret their value, this work of recovery has given rise to the release of some wines. Wines which are produced on a small quantity, after careful selection throughout the Quinta da Pellada vineyard from the healthiest plants of each variety. From this diversity, we have highlighted three fields that gave rise to Quinta da Pellada “Alto”; Quinta da Pellada “Casa”; Quinta da Pellada “49”. Without changing anything to the Quinta da Pellada wine, which maintains its normal blend, in which these parcels have a great expression, we decided to bottle separately a small part of these interpretative studies of specificity of each of tee micro-terroirs, to show them “Casa” . Casa Quinta da Pellada has aged in old French barrels for 28 months. This wine is another of the lessons of the winery in the terroir of this issue: this portion of Pellada is the “most exposed” of the three and has a more compact soil with some clay besides granite, the intense presence of pink / white quartz and the one that has more hours of sunshine per day.

For the Quinta da Pellada come mainly grapes “field blend” from the old vines, but also the Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz, where it discovers the intense fruit and freshness from the farm grapes that give the name to this wine.
