Quintas do Homem, Vinho Verde

A modern winery using sustainable and socially just wine making practices.

Quintas do Homem is a booming family run business established in 1985 and run by passionate people.

The Quintas consists of two vineyard area's; 12 ha at Quinta da Veiga which is planted with Loureiro, Alvarinho and Fernão Pires e Vinhão; and 7 ha at Quinta do Paço planted with Loureiro and Arinto.

Both vineyards are located in the village of Pico around the Vila Verde district of Braga. The winery itself is locatede at Quinta da Veiga, and was remodelled in 2011 to accomodate the most modern of equipment.

They are all committed to the policy of "integrated agriculture" (Lutte Raisonee) meaning that they farm as naturally as possible, trying to increase biodiversity, establishing a balanced environment in the vineyards where the vines do not depend on artificial fertilisers but exist in perfect partnership with the soil.

The cellars and winery, are simple but well equipped and the fruit is brought straight to the winery the moment it is picked to keep the fruit as healthy and as clean as possible.
