Quinta de Religăes is situated in the Vinho Verde region in the North of Portugal. The Vinho Verde region is one of the best known wine growing regions of Portugal.
Our Quinta lies just outside of the village of Castelo de Paiva (ca. 50 km East of Porto) along the Paiva river, which is a tributary of the famous Douro river. The Paiva river cuts through the hills that surround the Quinta, creating a micro climate that is very favourable to viniculture. The micro climate is a mixture of intense heat during the summer and abundant rainfall during the autumn and parts of spring. This combination of intense heat and abundant rainfall allows the grapes to develop a high sugar content.
At this moment, Quinta de Religăes is one of the most successful quinta’s in the Vinho Verde region, attracting interest from both the national and international market.
