‘Douro DOC’ Tasting Assobio White, Rose and Red

At the edge of Quinta dos Murças’ boundaries, there is a valley formed by steep slopes. Here, the vineyards are primarily north-facing at high altitudes, and are more protected from the sun. From plots like these, the fresh, versatile and food-friendly Assobio white, rose and red are produced. They are a result of the region’s most traditional grape varieties and offer a refreshing perspective on the classic region.

Terroir Tasting Quinta dos Murças Minas, Reserva e Margem

Quinta dos Murças is a unique place characterised by the diversity of its 8 terroirs. The region’s extreme climate and terrain, the agricultural practices respecting nature and the different winemaking processes emphasize the true character of the fruit, resulting in concentrated, elegant and fresh terroir-driven wines.

Tasting VV47

Guided tasting, with the Quinta dos Murças winemaker, José Luis Moreira da Silva.

Trails

We developed 3 different hiking trails that take you through the water springs (Minas), the riverbank (Margem) or the Assobio (Whistle) vineyard.  Enjoy these walks separately or turn them into a single hike. Take your time and discover the full diversity of the Estate which, each season, reveals a different side of its biodiversity.
