Grape variety:
100% Alvarinho

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.

Pairing recommendation

Bright citrus in colour. The aroma is full of stone fruit, blossom, lemon and mineral flavours and incredibly complex. Lively and vibrant acidity in the mouth.
