The Dão region is located in Beira Alta, central north of Portugal. The region is protected from the winds by the Caramulo, Montemuro, Buçaco and Estrela mountains, thus offering excellent geographical conditions for wine production.
The vineyards are located between 400 and 700 meters above sea level, on plateaus with shallow schist and granite soils, where pine forests abound, producing full-bodied wines with a high aging capacity. They have a wide variety of grape varieties, including Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Jaen and Tinta Roriz (the red varieties) and Encruzado, Bical, Cercial, Malvasia Fina and Verdelho (the white varieties).
Quinta da Teixuga is a property of 42 hectares, where the vineyards surround the imposing Adega.
In the vineyards of Quinta da Teixuga, some of which are over 50 years old, we can find the best grape varieties in the Dão region. Here, a project is being carried out to recover old vines with the main objective of restoring the liveliness of the grape varieties and, in this way, keeping a unique heritage alive. At the same time, the new vineyard planting project is based on new varieties that, in balance with the emblematic Dão grape varieties, are the material for exceptional wine compositions.
