This food and wine experience begins with a guided tour of our vineyards and winery. The tour culminates on our green terrace, where you will enjoy the nature of the Minho River Valley accompanied by the aromatic profile of Alvarinho. Next you will head to Quinta de Folga, our smokehouse located down the road from our winery. Here you will learn about our vineyards, herbal tea farms, and the time-honoured tradition of producing Fumeira (smoked meats) in Melgaço. In the inviting tasting room at Quinta de Folga, the experience finishes with a tasting of local delicacies and four of our most symbolic wines.
Bísaro pig, a local breed, is the focus at Quinta de Folga. Here, we raise this breed in an ecological manner, always showing respect for the environment. This gastronomic experience features a spread of traditional smoked meats: 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). These meats are accompanied by our own homemade jams and vegetables from our organic garden, matching perfectly with iconic wines from our collection.
Soalheiro Alvarinho (Clássico), our most emblematic wine, is the perfect expression of Alvarinho’s aromatic character. Primeiras Vinhas comes from our first vines, planted in 1974. Soalheiro Granit’s mineral profile comes from high altitude vineyards, expressing the versatility of our terroir. Finally, Espumante Bruto Alvarinho was the first sparkling wine made from Alvarinho following the traditional method. These four wines, with their varied profiles, represent important milestones in our history.
