Your experience begins with a guided tour of our vineyards and winery. While appreciating the natural beauty of the Minho River Valley from our terrace, you will taste the aromatic, yet elegant, profile of Alvarinho. This will be followed by a tasting of local products paired with our line of natural wines at Quinta de Folga, our smokehouse. While enjoying your food and wine experience you will learn about our vineyards, our herbal tea farm, and the history of producing traditional Fumeiro (smoked meat) in Melgaço.

At Quinta de Folga we centre on Bísaro, a special breed of pig, which we breed in an ecological and sustainable manner. During the tasting you will be offered a spread of traditional smoked meats including Salpicão (dry-cured smoked pork sausage), Chouriça de Sangue (smoked blood sausage), Chouriça de Carne (smoked pork sausage), and Alheira (smoked sausage made with pork and bread) as well as homemade jams and veggies from our organic garden. Match these regional delicacies with our line of natural wines for a truly unique food and wine tasting experience.

Terramater is an entirely different Soalheiro, our first unfiltered wine. Soalheiro Nature, without sulphites of filtration, pushes our Alvarinho grapes to the limit. Our limited edition Espumante Bruto Nature is made based on the ancestral method of sparkling wine production, using curious Yeast Pearls for the secondary fermentation. This tasting also features our most recognized wine, Soalheiro Alvarinho (Clássico).
