The historic manor of Quinta da Romeira dates back to 1703, although wine has been made here since Roman times. By the 13th century the region of Bucelas, located just to the north of Lisbon, already had a reputation for producing quality wines. Later they were favoured by England’s Duke of Wellington who imported significant quantities and even mentioned in Shakespeare’s Henry IV play.

This bright and breezy white is typical of the local winemaking style which tends to produce light-bodied and elegant wines from the local Arinto grape. The climate here is maritime thanks to the proximity to the Atlantic which helps moderate temperatures during the summer. Quinta da Romeira has around 75 hectares predominantly set on low rolling hills protected from the storms that blow in from the coast.

The grapes are carefully harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel tanks followed by maturation in oak barrels. On the nose there are aromatic notes of white peaches, citrus, and honeydew melon while the first sip reveals a racy acidity, light body, soft creamy texture and pure and clean finish. The vibrant flavour profile makes it a great choice for an aperitif or accompaniment to seafood, fish and chicken salads.
