To further reinforce our “terroir” natural characteristics the bushes edges and the orchard areas and forest production were maintained. These act as connecting corridors to neighbour territories of ecological compensation to help birds’, bees’ and other insects’ nesting and the planting of cover plant vines and secondary cultures.
Great wines done in partnership with nature.
The planted grapes variety is a selection of high quality red castes that are adapted to the development conditions of the hillside on the north of the farm. The dominant castes in Quinta do Espinho are Touriga Franca (35%), Touriga Nacional (25%), Tinta Roriz (20%), Tinta Barroca (8%), Tinta Francisca (5%), Alicante Bouschet (5%) and Tinto Cão (2%).
Our grapes also produce prime quality Port wine. And we are very proud of being Taylor’s preference, every year.
