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
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.
"We are lucky to be born in wine region we love... or was that
we were born here that made us fall in love…"
