Quinta do Monte D'Oiro
Located in the Lisbon region, Quinta do Monte d’Oiro has been a reference since the 17th century in the production of remarkable wines. It was acquired in 1986 by the gastronomic conaisseur José Bento dos Santos, who replanted the best plots – after several years of studies on the soil and climate conditions – with the grape varieties that best adapted to his designs of producing high quality wines, European style (Old World”), which concomitantly were wines of refined gastronomic sense, with a profile eminently tailored to accompany in perfect harmony dishes of a genuine regional cuisine, classical cuisine or haute cuisine. After the first years of consolidation of a consistent high quality wine production, Quinta do Monte d’Oiro entered a new phase in its history from the 2006 harvest, launching a new image and wines from a conversion to organic agriculture. Of the 42 ha of the property, only 15.5 ha were replanted with Syrah, Viognier and Petit Verdot, imported directly from their original regions in France, and with the Portuguese grape varieties Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.
