Single varietal red, full-bodied Vinho Verde, fresh and superb with grilled meat and chicken dishes.
Quintas do Homem is one of those estates that immediately captivates you with its charm, its passion and dynamism. Nuno and his father, Antonio, work the vines of their two vineyards, Quinta do Veiga and Quinta do Paço, where they grow predominately Loureiro and Arinto. Ana, their long term winemaker, is a fierce taskmaster, demanding quality fruit that enables her to deliver the pure, fine and elegant Vinho Verdes that Nuno expects. It's very much a family exercise with Nuno and his father working the vineyards, Nuno's mother preparing delicious, traditional Portuguese dishes for visitors and Ana, an adopted family member, making sure the wines are always perfect.
Tasting Note: Produced exclusively from the grape variety Vinhão, created with the traditional methods, allowing it to keep all its characteristics, aromas and flavours. It is a full-bodied wine with very well-balanced acidity.
