More about this winery: "In 1998 the future partners and winemakers of Quanta Terra Winery, Jorge Alves and Celso Pereira, began to select the ideal soils, locations for vines, grafts, exposure, altitude, slope, grapes, vine age, and more for their new vineyard. They understood that the character of wine is determined by the quality of the land where it is produced, and the choice of land is determined by man. After a long selection process, Alves and Pereira chose a location for Quanta Terra Winery in Tralhão, within the Douro Superior region. The company was officially founded in 1999." - Winery This wine also scored 89 Points WS and 88 Points WA! [+]
