Conceito do Vinho

Respecting the viticultural tradition of the world’s oldest demarcated wine region, we craft wines based on indigenous grapes varieties, which produce fresh, versatile and food-friendly wines.

Agricultura

Following a very wet winter and cold spring, the vegetative cycle began two to three weeks later than normal. The summer was hot and dry, accelerating ripening, producing concentrated grapes with good acidity and aromas. The harvest took place between 6th September and 7th October.

DOURO – ALTITUDE – FRESHNESS

At the edge of Quinta dos Murças’ boundaries, we find a valley formed by steep slopes. In this place, primarily north-facing and more protected from the sun, when the wind blows, we can hear it whistle.

Assobio comes from vineyards such as these, from plots boasting unique characteristics and planted at higher altitudes. The product of the region’s most traditional grape varieties, our fresh and versatile red, white and rosé Assobios are distinctly gastronomic wines.
