Introducing our newest portfolio addition: Morgado do Quintão from Algarve, Portugal! ☀️Join us for a chat with the winery owner Filipe Vasconcellos, consulting winemaker Joana Maçanita and Ole & Obrigado partner Rui Abecassis on Tuesday, August 11th at 1pm EST on Zoom Webinar and Instagram Live.
An historic estate in DOC Lagoa located in Algarve (the southernmost region of Portugal), Morgado do Quintão encompasses 60 hectares of vineyards that have been in the family for generations. Recognizing the potential of these old vines, Filipe recruited winemaker Joana Maçanita for her top-notch viticulture experience and her “minimal intervention” approach to winemaking which matches the Vasconcellos family’s own philosophy. Morgado do Quintão’s mission is to show the potential of indigenous -grape varieties like Crato Branco and Tinto Negra Mole.
