REGION: Tejo, Portugal
VARIETIES: Fernao Pires, Arinto, Sauvignon Blanc
The Quinta da Alorna is a stunning, 18th Century manor house with grounds which run down to the River Tejo's banks. Whilst still focusing on the native Portuguese varieties, they like to blend in more internationally-known choices too, to make their wines a little more approachable for all. Whilst not organic, they minimise the use of pesticides and take great care in respecting both their workers and the land. One of the landmark producers of this fast-rising region.
