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.

This year we started harvesting Alvarinho on the 23rd of August – in over 40 years, this is the earliest we have ever started harvesting the grape variety we focused on. Each year has specific characteristics and we had to adapt: if the year advances the vineyard, we advance the harvest.
