More info

Dão is one of the oldest established wine regions of Portugal, located just south of the famous Douro Valley. The mountainous region is home to Touriga Nacional, the principle variety of port wine. The region takes its name from the Dão river, a tributary of the larger Mondego river. The majority of the region's vineyards are located alongside the Dão river. Known for its fresh wines with powerful fruit, with elegant structure and body that can be enjoyed in youth and yet have an excellent potential for ageing.

This Portuguese white is a blend of Encruzado and Cerceal-Branco (also known as Cercial) for a beautifully balanced and fresh wine that will transport you to the scenic region of Dão. The juice is fermented in cement vats and then spends 3 months in oak for a smooth and rich mouth-feel.

Adega de Penalva do Castelo

Adega de Penalva do Castelo is a Dão winery revived by Abegoaria, the winemaking project of the Bio family. Originally from Alentejo, Ana and Manuel Bio have invested in Portugal’s wine heritage; modernising facilities, and revitalising wineries in historic wine regions. Penalva's wines are made using traditional grape varieties grown on the region’s rugged granitic terrain by local farmers in the district of Castendo. The protection of the Serra da Estrela and location at 500m altitude creates a generous microclimate and distinguished wines.
