Quinta do Pellada, D.O.C. Dão

Alvaro Castro has two Quintas. Saes is where he lives and the winery is located. But the more dramatic is Pellada, in the region of Sierra d'Estrella (mountains in the stars), is situated on a hillside with wonderful views and a fantastic old building that he's restoring from a semi-ruined state.

Alvaro Castro inherited the historic Pelleda winery in 1980, but the property dates to 1570. Alvaro and his daughter are now full-time on the estate, after a family absence from winemaking of two generations. Both Qunitas are planted to more than 30 indigenous Portuguese grape varieties such as Alfrocheiro, Jaen (Mencia in Spain), Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Roriz (aka Tempranillo). Soils are granitic, with either clay or sand base.
