The first wine produced by this company date 1993. In 1995 began the selling of a Regional Wine with Monte do Pintor brand. The vineyard located on a gentle hillside facing south with very characteristic soils of a distinct "Terroir". In vine varieties predominate traditional red varieties Trincadeira, Aragonez, Castelao, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Caiada, Alicante, Moreto and in the white varieties Verdelho, Arinto and Antão-Vaz. The harvest date is a decision wisely taken by winemaker, which daily, it analyzes the maturity of the grapes, grape by grape, thus controlling the acidity, sugar, color and richness of tannins. The harvest is made exclusively by hand and the grapes collected in small individual boxes (so there is not crushed grapes before arrival in the cellar).
