The base of a great wine will always be a great vineyard. Thats why all the Alves de Sousa familys wines are made exclusively from our own vineyards. Were present at the birth, we follow the first steps, acting always when necessary. Only this way is possible to know deeply the vineyard and achieve its best expression. Quinta da Oliveirinha is the most recent challenge for Alves de Sousa in the Douro, with a very good argument – its grapes great and recognized quality potential: 12 hectares of “Letter A” vineyards, the best rating for Port wine production, located precisely in the “heart” of the region, very close to Pinhão, and therefore with a natural (and even historical) ability to make great Ports, and now also great Douros. In this “Quinta” we can find the “Tapadinha” (pt. covered, hidden) vineyard, which, like the name says, is hidden in a slope that goes down until the Douro river, with a grape composition dominated by Touriga Franca, a grape that finds here one of its best expressions.
