Quinta dos Carapeços

A passion for the wines drove Miguel Abreu and his family to recover an estate that has been in the family since 1338.

In 2003, they have already replanted the vineyards, built the vinification center and recovered the 17th century Manour House. The result is a wonderful 20ha estate where they produce a very comprehensive portfolio, with a main focus on the Alvarinho variety

The collection also includes roses, sparklings and a Late Harvest, the first one to be produced in Vinho Verde region. Although they have a reasonable production (up to 200.000 bts) it can be considered a small producer in this region. Their golden rule is: “There are no two vintages alike”. And that is a guarantee that every year the grapes are treated with respect, with little intervention in the cellar, thus reflecting the characteristics of the year.
