Vineyards

“Vineyards are one of the treasures of the Douro Valley, a heritage that must be preserved for the next generations.”

The vineyards owned by Wine & Soul were acquired over the years since the company was established. An investment in old vineyards to produce wines that are capable of expressing the traditional Douro style, seeking a balance between concentration, balance and elegance.

The vineyards located in the Douro region, specifically in the sub-regions of Cima Corgo and Vale do Pinhão, in the village of Vale de Mendiz, are primarily old vineyards over 80 years old, made up of a blend of indigenous grape varieties. These properties include Quinta da Manoella, an estate owned by the Serôdio Borges family for 5 generations.
