Located in northeastern Portugal, surrounded by mountains that give it particular mesological and climatic characteristics, the Douro Demarcated Region was the first region in the world to be demarcated and regulated, in 1756, under the auspices of the Marquis of Pombal. It covers a total area of about 250,000 hectares and is divided into three naturally distinct sub-regions – Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior.

It is characterized by schistose soil slopes and a Mediterranean climate, with very cold winters and very hot and dry summers. These conditions are very favorable for the ripening of the grapes and, consequently, for the production of superior quality wines. It is in the Douro Demarcated Region that one of the world’s “classic” wines is produced – Port wine. The Douro Valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001.
The vineyards of Quinta Monte São Sebastião are planted in the sub-region of Cima Corgo, municipality of Murça, and are characterized by their altitude, excellent sun exposure, schist and granite soils, which contribute to the complexity and intensity of the wines produced here. These characteristics together allow us to produce very balanced wines, with character and uniqueness. The 35 hectares of vineyards are made up of the following Quintas:

Quinta Monte São Sebastião
São Sebastião
Vale da Dorna

Viticulture has been part of our family’s life for over 3 generations, so we value the production of grapes and we learned from our ancestors that wine should be made in the vineyard. The grape varieties of the Quinta contribute to the quality and originality of our wines, so we highlight the following: Reds: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Sousão White: Rabigato, Viosinho, Codega do Larinho, Gouveio and Fernão Pires.
