    Winemaker Notes

    Produced in the Refóios region, where the Loureiro grape variety is at its most aromatic and tasty.

    A delicate and fresh wine, with a great emphasis on its fruity and floral nose. Excellent as an aperitif and an especially good accompaniment to Asian cusine.

    Quinta do Ameal Winery Video

    Located in the Lima sub-region, in the Vinho Verde wine region, Quinta do Ameal is a historic property with records that date back to 1710. Extending along 800 meters of riverbank, the Estate measure approximately 30 hectares, 14 of which are occupied by organix Loureiro vineyards. Over the years, Ameal has become a pioneer in establishing the capacity of the Loureiro variety to produce high quality white wines with great ageing potential.

    The combination of Quinta do Ameal’s unique characteristics, its location, granite soils, the Lime Valley’s typical climate and agricultural practices that respect nature, result in singular wines, with a character and ageing potential that reflect different expressions of the Loureiro grape variety.

    Best known for intense, impressive and age-worthy fortified wines, Portugal relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to its north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean on its west and south coasts, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, due to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. A long and narrow but small country, Portugal claims considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast.

    While Port (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), made Portugal famous, Portugal is also an excellent source of dry red and white Portuguese wines of various styles.

    The Douro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated dry red Portuguese wines made from the same set of grape varieties used for Port, which include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo), Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão, among a long list of others in minor proportions.

    Other dry Portuguese wines include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde white wine, made in the north, and the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão as well as the bold, and fruit-driven reds and whites of the southern, Alentejo.

    The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast.

    Dating back to the late 18th century, Loureiro is native to Iberian Peninsula, grown mostly within the Minho region, though has flourished currently into neighboring Galicia. It produces a dry, high-toned, crisp white wine, redolent with aromas of white flowers and bay leaves. The grape is essential to the production of Portugeuse Vinho Verde and white blends of the Spanish region Rias Baixas. Somm Secret—The word Loureiro means “laurel” in Portugeuse, conveying the wine’s bay leaf aromatics.
