Quinta do Mariposa Reserva, Dao, Portugal

£17.50

Quinta da Mariposa is a ‘distinctly Dão’ producer, making wines that are characteristic of the region from only native varieties; including Encruzado, Jaen and Tinta Roriz.

After working with some of the best wineries of the Dão region, oenologist Lúcia Freitas returned to her family estate in Terras de Senhorim to establish Quinta da Mariposa – a project that harmonizes her respect for tradition and her dream of making wines of extraordinary character from the region she knows so well. Together with her husband Filipe, plans are currently underway to convert the town’s local nightclub into a winery, serendipitously this is where the couple danced together when they were young.
