Quinta Do Ameal

Quinta do Ameal is the quality champion of Vinhos Verdes, and devoted to the Loureiro grape variety. Ameal is a walled vineyard planted in 1948, in the northern sub-region of Lima. The soils are deep yellow granite sand, slightly acidic with little organic material. There are 14 hectares of vines, facing south, sloping gently down to river Lima. Viticulture is organic and biodynamic. Today, Quinta do Ameal is owned and directed by the energetic (perhaps, visionary) Pedro Araújo, the first to anticipate and pursue Vinho Verde wines of excellence reflecting terroir.
