Our origins

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.

our grapes

One of the unique points of the Portuguese Dão wines is their reliance on indigenous varieties.

touriga nacional

Touriga Nacional is the leading variety of the Dão and produces spicy wines with forest fruit characteristics.

02

Tinta roriz

The thick-skinned, dark-colored grapes of the Tinta Roriz variety gives a fruity taste and resinous fragrance.

03

jaen

The Jaen is known for its peppery taste.

04

alfrocheiro

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

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.
