O Produtor, tasting note published in February 27th 2020
The colour is citrus yellow and the appearance is crystalline. The aroma is delicate, austere, with the character of the variety in the Upper Douro of altitude. In the mouth it surprises by the good structure.

VINILOURENÇO has its headquarters in the Upper Douro, in the village of Poço do Canto, near the city of Meda. It was created with the mission of transforming and boosting the production of the vines that began to be planted in the 80’s by Horácio Lourenço, after his return from Angola. His passion for wine led him to develop his heritage. The concept of “Quinta” does not apply to the 45 existing Hectares due to their different locations, Poço do Canto, Vale da Teja and Pocinho. The disadvantage of the higher cost of production is balanced by the greater diversity allowing to take full advantage of all the properties with altitudes ranging from 180m to 700m. The soils are Schist in the lower areas and Schist/Granite in the higher areas. The differences in climate, location, altitude and soil, combined with the same grape varieties planted in different territories, allow the creation of distinct wines avoiding the common standardization. From 2006 Jorge Lourenço creates VINILOURE with the precious help of his father Horácio Lourenço.
