2019 MARCO 3 In Mare white
A destination with unknown characteristics
An unexpected and happy rest
Air, land, sea
And the result?
A subtle and delicate wine, with a soft and vaporous aroma
An unprecedented colour: bluish flashes of the Portuguese sea on the gold of the Douro.
The MARCO 3 wines are produced by Héstia e Baco - Turismo e Viticultura, Lda., exclusively in the schist floor vineyards of Quinta Ferreira de Baixo, in Mesão Frio, on the Douro river, where Marco number 3 of the 1758 Pombaline trading post, which gives them their name, is located. Estates wines, born in a unique terroir, are accompanied with the utmost care from vineyard to the bottle, produced with minimal intervention, which makes this wines excellents, with a very own identity and no artifice, with total respect for the land and its people and reconciled with their origin and nature.
