Portuguese. Cheda wines are made by 15 families of farmers that
have been making wines in the Douro for decades.

tradition and innovation. To make wines that reflect the great
diversity of terroir in the Douro under one roof, with one approach
and one winemaking team. Paulo Ruão and Olga Martins are the
incredibly talented winemakers behind Lavradores di Feitoria. Their
Cheda range offers fantastic value from the heart of the Douro
Valley - bright, youthful, approachable styles of wine that fit
comfortably onto any shelf or wine list.
