Discover the Douro Region

Today we invite you to take a trip through the Douro, starting at Cima corgo at Quinta dos Murças, passing through Quinta de Valbom and ending at the wonderful CARM.

Quinta do Murças is located in the center of DOC Douro and is characterized by the presence of 8 terroirs very marked by the mountains, the different altitudes and sun exposures, the schist soils and the characteristic climate of the Douro valley. In the vineyards, dozens of autochthonous varieties were planted, according to Organic Production and Integrated Production. The olive trees, orange trees, almond trees and the Mediterranean forest help to maintain the balance of the ecosystem.

Quinta de Valbom is located in the heart of the Alto Douro Wine Region. Its traditional terraces form a natural amphitheater where centenary vineyards grow, in a stunning landscape that culminates on the banks of the Douro River. The preservation of this Douro heritage, identity and traditions, combined with more sustainable viticulture and enology techniques and the know-how of the enology team from the renowned Herdade dos Grous, led by the winemaker Luís Duarte, allow the production of terroir wines, which reflect the Quinta de Valbom mission.

CARM is located in the Douro Demarcated Region - Douro Superior Sub Region, on the outskirts of the village of Almendra. The production method is mostly organic or integrated production and only national, indigenous varieties of the region are used. From the beginning, the objective was to produce high quality wines, with a more international profile, both in terms of elegance and freshness, but always respecting the Douro Superior region.

If you want to know a little more about the 3 emblematic Douro estates, don’t miss out this unique opportunity, and if you buy our pack “The Douro Reds - Murças, Valbom and CARM” you receive a digital thermometer to measure the temperature of your wines, and guarantee a perfect service in each tasting.
