2017 Quinta do Poço do Lobo Arinto Reserva white
Quinta do Poço do Lobo was acquired by Caves São João in 1971 and this is a rustic property with about 37 hectares, located in the small town of Pocariça in the municipality of Cantanhede. After the acquisition, the Quinta underwent restructuring with the planting of new grape varieties, in addition to the traditional ones, in order to innovate, without ever losing the connection to the ancestors.
Founded in 1920 by brothers José, Manuel and Albano Costa, Caves São João is a family business that, at first, was dedicated to the sale of fine Douro wines and liqueurs.
What is now the oldest family wine company still operating in the municipality of Anadia, started, in the 1930s, with the ban on producing port outside Vila Nova de Gaia, to sell Bairrada table wines.
Thus, at the end of the 1950s, one of the most famous wine brands in the Bairrada region was born, Frei João and, later on, the brand Porta dos Cavaleiros, in the demarcated region of Dão.
