The Vinho Verde Region
The Vinho Verde Region is more than just a bottle: its geographical location and delimitations, the characteristics of its soil, the specific environment and climate conditions allow it to grow endogenous (and exclusive!) grape varieties for such unique wines.
It is true the Vinho Verde Region has a specific microclimate, brought by such distinct and peculiar set of geographical, climacteric, and terroir characteristics, and the practices and methods of cultural vinification confirm and consecrate the uniqueness of Vinho Verde wines.
It is 111 years since the Vinho Verde Region was declared by the Legal Charter as a Vinho Verde Demarcated Region. Considered a national scenario and legally recognized as such in the early ’60s as a D.O.C. – Denomination of Controlled Origin, the Vinho Verde Region has increased its traditional vinification efforts, mainly due to its native grape varieties, which have produced wines with low alcohol content, young and fresh wines best consumed within a year.

From a land of History and Tradition
in the production of fine wines: always light, always fresh, always refreshing.
The uniqueness, acidity, boisterous texture and final taste in each glass conquer the hearts of more and more wine lovers around the world for their gastronomic aptitude to several cultures and palates, always with a mark of lightness, freshness and slight acidity.
From Amarante, Portugal.
With each sip, a different flavor and unique texture that could only come from the city amidst the river and the sierra.
From early on we realized that we were not conveying the right message mirrored to our identity, the new youth and the history of the Region. Concerned to be erased and infimated in a country of the most varied wines and wine varietals, we thrived to stand out as we always thought we were: truly special.
Hidden along the banks of ash trees and alder trees, the river Otter is a nomadic savage, choosing land and water as its habitats.
The Vinho Verde White wine takes youth, dynamism, and freedom of movement from the Otter: it personifies the surrounding nature, river waters, and mountains, which provides so much of the lightness, freshness, and unique palate of the White.
Without the influence of the microclimate of the Region, the valleys and mountains, the proximity to the Atlantic, the humidity and the sea winds, such color, texture, body, and young ripeness would not be achieved.
It represents a light wine, sweet palate, agitated body, lightly charred, and clear and pinkish color. A mellic Vinho Verde of extreme freshness, like the freshwater rivers of Amarante.
The Royal Duck is a gregarious, flock bird which mirrors the sharing of this soft and fresh Rosé with those you most want – family and friends.
Next to the river bed of the Tâmega, hidden between the banks of streams, ponds, and lagoons, the meadows, willows, and ashes, lives the river turtle.
With a pronounced timidity but imposing presence, the amphibian easily gives identity to a more conservative and reserved Vinho Verde, a description for its lovers – strong of palate, snobs of wine, and bold of textures.
