António Madeira, Portuguese and French descent, has his family roots in the foothills of the Serra da Estrela, sub-region of Dão. In these highlands, António believes that is in the historical heart of the Dão, the area that has the highest potential for guard wines, the area where the wines are more fine, fresh, austere and mineral. Since 2010, António Madeira has been researching in this sub-region area that our ancestors had chosen as the best for vineyards, those we might call the "Grand Crus of Dão Serrano '. It has thus come to find a number of old vines that stand out for the genuineness of their caste, the characteristics and nuances of the granitic soils where deeply rooted and the sun exposure. Among them, that the vine that gives rise to this wine. It is a vine with 50 years saved from abandonment, after not having been pruned for 3 years.
