Loureiro grapes are harvested manually from the oldest vineyards at Quinta do Regaínho, produced in a traditional way and according to the concepts of sustainable agriculture in order to respect the ecosystem.
The Cávado subregion is located just across the river basin that gave it its name. Being of low altitude and being very exposed to the sea winds, it brings a mild climate without great thermal amplitudes that, together with mostly granitic soils, give the wines unique characteristics.

Strict manual selection of grapes and total destemming. Light pressing of the grapes with separation of musts by potentiometry. Careful fermentation in "open spout" at controlled temperature for almost a month in vats.
The wine ages for 9 months in French oak barrels (new and used) "sur les lies", a period during which weekly batonnages are held.
It presents a citrus color with golden reflections. Structured and complex wine, without losing its youth and the fruity and floral aromas of the Loureiro variety. In the mouth, vanilla notes are mixed with aromas of fruit jam and honey. It has a long and persistent finish. We can also say that it is a refreshing wine, thanks to its good acidity, characteristic of this region.
