Welcome to our family!
As far as our memory goes, Alvarinho was always present in our Territory, where grapevines were traditionally planted around the outskirts of a parcel. João António Cerdeira was the first to break from this tradition in Melgaço and planted a full parcel as a continuous vineyard of Alvarinho. Today the third generation family members continue to embrace this spirit of innovation.

Before Alvarinho became the most widely grown crop, the people of Monção and Melgaço would tend to plots of aromatic herbs in their own backyards to be used for infusions and culinary purposes. Our line The Pur Terroir herbal teas pays respect to this time-honoured tradition, as well as our terroir.

Monção and Melgaço Day is celebrated on June 7th and, as always, we make a point of celebrating it with the future protagonists of our region. In the year we turn 40, we returned to the elementary schools of Monção and Melgaço to present the game “The Adventure of the Alvarinho Grape”.
The diversity of this Territory is one of the characteristics that provides it with uniqueness. The cultivation of aromatic plants is a long-standing tradition in Monção and Melgaço.
