Do you know Portugal and their incredible wines?
Discover the region of Tras-os-Montes, with vineyards located on the slopes of small valleys, essentially around the Vega de Chaves. In this region, the cultivation of the vine goes back in time, many years ago, and we can find historical evidences that prove that, back in the Roman era, the wine was cultivated. They were well-known wines and very famous for their high quality produce. But there’s a special area where those vineyards keep greater history: Quinta de Arcossó. It’s an emblematic building for its pre-Roman past and because of its present, as well. These wines are still produced by hand.
Currently, the quality of these wines is more than proven by the numerous awards they receive, which are the result of the work of nature and man. Come and discover this wine paradise, yet to be discovered!
