Ruby red in colour. The bouquet is aromatically very fruity, clean, harmonious, with ripe fruit, typical of Douro wines, reminding blackberry, black plum and cherry nuances. The palate is fruity, smooth and very elegant, with a balanced acidity, soft and velvety tannins. Full of fruit, it has a fine and very dry on the finish.

Lavradores translates as 'farmers' in Portuguese. 15 families of farmers that have been making wines in the Douro for decades. Together they own 19 Quintas throughout the three sub-regions of the Douro Valley. They came together to share resources, expertise, tradition and innovation. The vineyards that make up Lavradores de Feitoria are dispersed throughout the Douro Wine Region, either in the Baixo or Cima Corgo or in the Douro Superior. The fact that the grapes come from 20 different 'Quintas' contributes to the complexity and character of Lavradores de Feitoria wines. The versatility and multiplicity of native grape varieties, vineyards of different ages, the different altitudes and the diversity of soils leads to a diversity of terroirs that greatly 'feeds' the complexity of their Douro wines. 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 de Feitoria.
