Quinta de Lemos produces precious Dão wines.
Our grapevines are nurtured by patient and loving hands.
To honor our natal region, we create exclusive wines, made of indigenous Dão grape varieties.
Quinta de Lemos is well hidden in the beautiful valley of the Dão,
the oldest wine producing region in Portugal.
Located near Viseu, the regional capital, full of charm and with a medieval heart, the Quinta is set on the plateau of Beira Alta at an altitude of 340 m.
In this green haven in the center of Portugal, the Quinta consists of 25 ha of vineyards surrounded by olive trees, orchards, and woods.
The granite and sandy soils of the Dão valley are well protected by four big mountains, shielded from the harsh extremes of a continental climate and the humid Atlantic inﬂuences.
The name de Lemos has its origin in the Iberian peninsula.
The family crest of four moons gathered in a circle symbolizes not only the four compass points explored by this Portuguese family but similarly the four mountains protecting the Quinta de Lemos within the Dao valley, and also the four wine varietals used in the Dao wines and at last the four family values of Humanity, Simplicity, Vision, and Sharing.
To honor its natal region, the de Lemos family believes to create one of the ﬁrst high-quality Dão wines, made exclusively of the indigenous varieties.
One of the unique points of the Portuguese Dão wines is their reliance on indigenous varieties.
Touriga Nacional is the leading variety of the Dão and produces spicy wines with forest fruit characteristics.
The thick-skinned, dark-colored grapes of the Tinta Roriz variety gives a fruity taste and resinous fragrance.
The Jaen is known for its peppery taste.
Whereas the Alfrocheiro shows a wine with a velvety texture, inky depth of color and ﬂavors of mint, ﬂowers and fresh strawberries.
Classically the Dão wine is a blend of two or more of these varietals.
Each year Quinta de Lemos presents two blends
and different mono-varietal wines.
Encruzado, an excellent grape variety from Dão, has notes of greens, fruits and minerals while it’s young.
These wines have a great longevity in the bottle due to their structure, making them unctuous with notes of nuts, hazelnuts and pine nuts.
Malvazia-Fina, is the most widely cultivated white grape variety in the Dão region,resulting in a very expressive wine of medium body, with intense floral aromas.
It is a pleasure to welcome you into the world of our family.
